  I can't duplicate it in a small program :-(

  I'm beginning to suspect funkiness in my code, although I've sanitized a lot
of stuff (I'm converting a non-Gnome program--and in fact keeping the ability to
compile without Gnome--so the code is a little messy and not structured
optimally for Gnome).  One more weird thing has materialized: occasionally if
I tear the menubar off before doing anything else, a gray rectangle the size of
the client area tears off with it.  I've got three screenshots attached here
(really small)--the first is of the window as it first appears--if you look
closely you can see text sticking down under the menu, the second is after I
resized it slightly (actually I think maybe I just detached and reattached
the menu bar), and the third attempts to demonstrate the "client area tearoff"
oddness that I just turned up.  I don't have time to work on trying to
duplicate this or solve it right now [last day of finals] so unless you have a
suggestion offhand I'll shelve it for a few days.
