Since webkitgtk-1.9.90, plugins don't display properly.

Testing <embed src="foo.ogg" width="100" height="100" /> with
totem-mozplugin installed to handle such requests, using GtkLauncher.

When the page is loaded, the audio starts playing, but the video can't
be seen - its all white. Moving the window around the screen doesn't
cause any change. Maximizing the window causes the video to suddenly

webkitgtk-1.9.6 worked fine, so this is a fairly recent regression.
I've done a diff between the good and bad versions - there are a
number of plugin-related changes, none directly in the GTK port, not
really sure where to start.

Is this a known bug? Can anyone else reproduce it?
