A further, related, query: something like the fourth screen can appear
at anytime (there is a Gtk2::Helper->add_watch() listening on a socket
for incoming messages [which all works just fine]). A user may be
sitting in some modal "dialog" in a popup window. Can you just change
widget and it will redraw underneath or does one have to either destroy
or wait until the dialog window is closed, first?

I should add that it is only the frame widget in the top RHS that
changes between screen 3 and 4. And that frame widget could be one of
several different depending on what type of message appears.

Screen 3 is the 'base' screen for the rest of app. It will have modal
popups overlaying it, but will otherwise only alter by incoming messages
or pressing the next and prev buttons.
