yup. I'm pretty much the only "Developer" (that term should be used
very loosely when referring to me) using an alternative WM. There are
a couple of users who've complained about this issue as well using
some-other-random-WM's, making it an issue that I have interest in
fixing. A gui-heavy app like gnucash is already difficult enough to
use in a tiling/keyboard situation without it having these little problems.

yet another reason to fix it ;)

thanks for the pointer to the extra gtk_wdiget_* calls. THere was a
little interest on #gnucash about reworking that just because it's
ugly and a little hackish. Also, I pulled that extra _hide out and now
it works beautifully, though there are possibly other complications. 

you are jcreigh, I see... see you on #gnucash...
