GTK doesn't support overlapping widgets.

If you want to do this kind of thing, you should use the Canvas widget
from GNOME, which as of GNOME 1.3/2.0, does not require you to use any
part of GNOME that is not also required by GTK+.

But as an aside, since the GtkFixed has its own window, why use the
table of eventboxes? Just get mouse events from the GtkFixed, get the
coordinates, and figure out where they occured.
