Still can't get tooltips background to be yellow

Good afternoon,

I found Owen's comments in the archive (see below) about how to make the
tooltips background yellow.  I still can't seem to make it work.  I can
affect the color of the text in the tooltips, although I had to make the
following RC-file adjustment:

   class "GtkTooltips" style ...

but no matter what I do with any of the bg[xxxx] directives, I get
nothing with the background.  

gtk-config tells me I'm using version 1.2.1.

Appreciate any thoughts on this.

Also, as an aside, does anyone know _why_ Redhat had to close off the
mailing list archive during the SEC-mandated quiet period?
