Get version 0.10 of gtk-engines from This version fixes
this problem. (It actually works around the problem - since the
actual problem is that most pixmap themes don't have any pixmap that
gets drawn for the background of an EventBox)

Most likely, the base of the GtkEntry is being drawn with a solid
color pixmap by the particular pixmap theme, so your setting doesn't
take effect.
