[Gtk-sharp-list] Widget Background Color 'anomaly', and request for further reading

I've had a quick look already at the Gtk+ source and docs, but got a bit lost
with the complications of colours, and thought that I might be missing
something obvious.  Your info re "modifier style" is helpful, as I hadn't
come across this extra factor.  As it happens, I've satisfied my immediate
needs by using the 'ModifyBg' method without the colour parameter, which
restores the default colour (perhaps from some form of stack?), but I'm
surprised that trying to *read* the current background could be construed as
'advanced'!  I'll see what the Gtk+ lists have to say.
