compliant behaviour would be to set the property for all pop-up windows
to the top-level window that caused them to appear. However, wether that
is actually a Good Thing or not (and/or entirely compatible with gtk as it
is currently implemented) can be discussed. Either way, I think it should
be settable from within gtk.
