[Gtk-sharp-list] Background color of Notebook page

The container you are using for the Gtk.Notebook page is a Gtk.Fixed 
container? That is the only way I know to put more than one widget into 
a container. I hope I had mentioned that before I might have not been 
clear enough. To have an image behind other widgets it has to be a 
Gtk.Fixed. Add the image to the Fixed container then add additional 
widgets, the additional widgets that you add to the Gtk.Fixed you are 
using as a page can be a container itself which would return you to a 
"flow layout".

I hope that is a little clearer, I suspect if you are already using a 
Fixed container for your Notebook Page that the image is in front of 
your other widgets.

If you are still having issues I'll write a quick example.
