color in subwindows

I'm trying to use wbkgd(), with a different wbkgd() in different subwindows, recursively. These are also inside of a panel. So I might have a panel with a subwindow that has a border, and a useful subwindow inside of the border; this in turn might have a temporary "pop up" style subwindow inside of it, and I want to set wbkgd() separately for each subwindow. Unfortunately, I seem to be doing something wrong, and the final wbkgd() (although called for the specific subwindow and not for the parent window) seems to be the color that results for all windows up to the parent. I wanted to verify that ncurses should be able to set (separately) the background properties of each subwindow within a parent, recursively. Should I be able to set colors up like this (therefore my code is in error), or am I simply finding a restriction?
