Without having tested, I don't think it's nasty in GTK3, it seems like
a legitimate, supported use case.

Wouldn't solving this issue generally require to test if the mouse
event is contained in the widget shape? Anyway I'm not sure this is
something we need to solve now, I can't think of cases in our UI where
it's important and it would not be a regression compared to hippo.

Just my $0.01.
