Ah, I see. You are worried about the event propagation
that X does, not just GTK+'s event propagation.
so that the events you receive have the right window field
should be harmless. The extra messages won't confuse the button

It doesn't generate any more traffic - the X server will
send a single event in either case. There will be a few
more GTK+ signals being emitted (to be precise, two more),
but the effect should be completely unnoticeable.
