Detailed Description

Event capturing box.

This widget is used to force a physical window where one does not normally
appear. _The widget is transparent and has no physical appearence_. 

What I'm trying to do is set a "background" color for a frame.  I want to
put a label, and button inside a frame and give the whole thing a different
background color than the Window has.  Frames are transparent, so I have to
put them inside something thats not transparent, and googling found a old
gtk post saying that eventboxes could have their backgrounds change.

Is there, perhaps, something that can be done to the Eventbox that makes it
