[Gtk-sharp-list] Scrollwindow don't works inside Gtk.Fixed

Hi *,

i have build a "mini" example for my problem (please see the 
attachment). There is a Gkt.Window and it is filled with a 
Scrolledwindow. This Scolledwindow is filled with a EventBox and this 
EventBox is filled with a Fixed. :-)
If you perform a right-mouse-button-press on the window, a black filled 
DrawingArea is created on the Fixed. This DrawingArea can be moved by 
holding down left-mouse-button.
The problem is that there should be created scollbars when i move the 
DrawingArea out of the windowborder or if i make the window smaller. Is 
this possible that there will be scrollbars shown?
