If this helps a bit: It also worked iirc in the gtk1-version! (except for  
html-msgs because of the great gtkhtml1 in former times :)

Perhaps it's because of the focus. OnMouseOver is nearly always  
interpreted by gtk (for example in contrast to windows...) and if you try  
it, nearly every scrollable widget can be used with the scrollwheel  
without a click to focus it explicitly.
