I needed the same thing for a program I'm working on. I solved it by
subclassing ScrolledWindow and overriding on_size_request() - see

There are a few bugs, for example the child doesn't seem to draw
anything outside the initially visible area until after you resize the
ScrolledWindow for the first time, but it might be a good starting

If you find a way to do it without this bug, please let me know.
