OK. Look at em-message-browser.c:147

	emmb = (EMMessageBrowser *)em_message_browser_new();
	gtk_widget_show((GtkWidget *)emmb);
	/* FIXME: title set elsewhere? */
	emmb->window = g_object_new(bonobo_window_get_type(), "title", "Ximian Evolution", NULL);
	bonobo_window_set_contents((BonoboWindow *)emmb->window, (GtkWidget *)emmb);

so, an EMMessageBrowser is embedded in a vanilla BonoboWindow.
And BonoboWindows don't support the ETaskBar stuff, so you can only set
the status bar via the BonoboUI interface.

Really, I don't know what else I could explain. I'm going to #evolution
now so you can ask about the exact details that are still hazy.
