QTableView background image fixed in lower right corner of viewport

Hi, I've successfully subclassed a QTableView and added an eventFilter that uses QStylePainter to draw a pixmap in the lower right corner of a QTableView that is fixed to the lower right corner of the viewport even when scrolled or resized. Applying this same technique to a QTreeView the pixmap is drawn correctly initially and then gets out of synch with scrolling and resizing.

Code for event filter is below (code tags don't seem to like the python)

def eventFilter(self, obj, ev):

if ev.type() == QEvent.Paint and obj == self.viewport():
h = self.pixmap.rect().height()
w = self.pixmap.rect().width()
r = self.viewport().rect()

x = r.right() - w
if self.verticalScrollBar().isVisible(): x += self.verticalScrollBar().width()

y = r.bottom() - h + self.horizontalScrollBar().height() - 17
if self.horizontalScrollBar().isVisible(): y += self.horizontalScrollBar().height()

QStylePainter(obj).drawItemPixmap(r, Qt.AlignRight, self.pixmap)

return super(TreeView, self).eventFilter(obj, ev)
