I have built Webkit in order to get rid of X11 calls.
Tried to replace the X11 API with GDK calls.
But it fails when there is conversion from GtkXtBin to GtkSocket
And one more thing I found gdk_window_add_filter()'s call back
function is not getting called in my plug in library.
I doubt its because, the plug in window creation may be a problem.
