I have discovered a bug in Gtk::Widget::get_default_colormap(). It needs
a "refreturn" in the .hg file. I'll fix that.

As a workaround for now, you should be able to using
Gdk::Screen::get_default()->get_default_colormap(). However, you need at
least gtkmm 2.4.6, because Screen::get_default() used to have the same

By the way, Gtk::Widget::get_default_colormap() is a static function, so
you don't need the _drawarea instance in order to call it.
