As I've already told Michael, I think this is a bug. :)

gtk_widget_set_name() does go ahead and reset the style, but it's just
not doing whatever magic gtk_widget_set_style() does to make it take
effect.  Is there any reason not to change gtk_widget_set_name() to
call _set_style() rather than mucking with the pointers by hand.

Problem is, as far as I can tell, the only way to circumvent the
problem is to call gtk_widget_set_name(), then gtk_rc_get_style() to
get the style object, -again- and use gtk_widget_set_style() to set
it.  Lots 'o duplicated code, and a fairly ugly hack.

(In any case, I will have a patch (woo-hoo a  whole three lines
changed) in a few minutes here for at least Michael to play with :)
