Yeah but that does not mean it cannot help out here. Maybe some clever use of 
the wx size hints (if there is such a thing) might make it calculate the 
needed space. maybe the children do not properly report their size.

It might work by increasing the size hint as a crude hack.

It might get the wrong size hints.

That would indeed make gtk the culprit and one would hope it will be fixed
