I noticed something similar while documenting the scrollable widgets

No no, please don't feel sorry about this. The gtk-sharp API is in no
way set in stone now, and there is a LOT of work to be done to figure
out how to add polish to the existing code. This is excellent work,
exactly the sort of worked necessary in order for gtk-sharp to become a
truly excellent binding.

In the past, I have attempted to 'audit' the gtk-sharp source code. I
wasn't able to do much (it was much too tedious) and only now do I
realize that this documentation work is going be to driving force behind
this auditing of the gtk-sharp API.

Thanks for all your work recently, and I'm looking forward to see your
next set of batches ;-)
