Hi Jeff!

I think it does work, but the color on the GtkHScale does not really
change, only after changing the value at the slider, as before.

I added (hint from the gtk mailing list) this:

			while (gtk_events_pending()=gtk_true) do gtk_main_iteration ();

to process all pending draw event afterwards, but no luck. :(

Must be a bug or some plan I do not get.

Has anyone ever managed to change a GtkHScales color on the fly?

I can do it at startup from the ressource file, but changing afterwards
is not possible. But it does work when i minimize the window and restore
it! And it is colorizing the whole bar, not only the places where the
slider steps ...

Any further hints?
