OK - a more likely reason for failure is that these events usually have
xany->window == NULL.  I believe that gtk+ throws these out if they are
not caught by _gdk_default_filters (which I think it where the "global"
filter funcs go).  So I think my worry about multiple notifications is
not well founded; using the global gdk filter mechanism will probably
work fine. 

thanks for the catch Jody; correct me if I'm wrong, Owen.
