Ok, I looked up at the documentation for realize, and this is what it
has to say:

 * This function is primarily used in widget implementations, and
 * isn't very useful otherwise. Many times when you think you might
 * need it, a better approach is to connect to a signal that will be
 * called after the widget is realized automatically, such as
 * "expose_event". Or simply gtk_signal_connect_after() to the
 * "realize" signal.

I noticed that in mPhoto I get the GdkWindow in the expose handler.
