Tobias' method is the best for normal drawings: it works for any toolkit 
and window manager.

As for the GLArea, I have no idea how and if it is possible! The GLArea 
is entirely managed by the underlying toolkit, so I don't know we can 
get the contents of the final OpenGL drawing. I guess it is an OpenGL 
thing, but only an expert will answer you.
