Because with the current approach we can only take these screenshots
while the window is visible on the screen, and taking them on window
navigation events is the only way to ensure they are always updated.
There are a couple of ways we can take them only when saving the document:
1 Use gtk offscreen rendering (should be available in F10)
2 Use a composite manager (which has several side effects...)
