 user_data is a pointer to the structure. So its members should
be read this way:


 Also make sure the user_data is of the type "pointer-
to-that-structure" you have created. If you pass it to
press_3rd_button_event as a gpointer, the function will
not know what members it has.

 If you can avoid it, your code will look much better.
