no, the vm draws to a posix shared memory bitmap area via quartz, and  
sends the draw rectangle coordinates to the browser plugin. On idle  
events from the browser the plugin pulls data from the pipe and uses  
quartz to take the bitmap coordinates and draw into the plugin's  
drawing surface using the shared memory bitmap . I don't believe you  
can share a drawing context between processes, however I'll welcome a  
chance to be corrected.  So we don't get window notification, however  
I'll look at the issue of what happens with the pipes when the parent  
process goes away
