Really, I'd suggest not using GtkHandleBox ... in the end, I don't
consider it a successful widget. One of the basic problems with
GtkHandleBox is that you want to reattach to the *window* rather than
to the site where the GtkHandleBox was removed from. You need a "dock"
widget that has a more global view of the geometry of the window.
