X error BadWindow inside gdk_window_add_colormap_windows

Hi all:

I'm receiving a BadWindow X error inside gdk_window_add_colormap_windows

I've been looking to this function source and I think the error is that is
giving the toplevel window to the X, obtained with gdk_window_get_toplevel.
Probably the problem is that I'm doing some stuff with clutter and
offscreens so I think that the toplevel window should be obtained through
the get_effective_toplevel function.

I can not easily confirm this because I'm using gtk 2.18 and I need to
download / upgrade lots of libraries in order to compile gtk 2.22, to use
the get_effective functions.

I would like if anyone can confirm this as a bug. I'm afraid I can not do a
simple example code to reproduce the problem, but I can confirm that it only
fails with using an rgba visual in the gtk widget instead of the default rgb

This is part of the backtrace.
