You need it on the socket too. Every GdkWindow between the component 
(including the component i assume) has to have ParentRelative.

I think if you modify the style so the background is "<parent>" it uses 
ParentRelative. It might even be possible to test this by only modifying 
the .gtkrc-2.0 file.
