Forwarding Debian bug report with patch to upstream.
As I looked newer 1.0.0, code seems to be in the same shape.
The look of uim applet does not react to changes in the background of a panel,
so looks a little weird on transparent panels. Attached is a patch that is
borrowed from gnome-applets' source

See patch at http://bugs.debian.org/321705
Thanks for the report. The bug is reproduced.
But on my environment, the patch shows corrupted image on the applet.
Although I'm not familiar with GTK+ programming, it looks something wrong
compared with the original code.
OK. Now I've committed the fix with pluging one leak.
I've checked this works fine on gtk+-2.9.1 (Fedora rawhide).

normal uim applet appearance
Although it normally displayed on first repetition of the pixmap, it is
corrupted on 2nd and subsequent tile-patterned repetition of the image. See
attached PNG files.
My environment is GNOME 2.12.3 and GTK+ 2.8.12 installed from FreeBSD ports.
Hmm... The patch uses the same way as in gnome-volume-manager applet. How does
it works on your environment?
Both the volume control and weather report applets are corrupted alike uim applet.
So uim applet should be rewritten to 'proper' way.
Does the two works properly on your environment? As I mentioned in comment #1,
newer? version of the weather report applet has a different handler.

Yep. Both work fine, as uim applet works without problem on gtk+-2.9.1.
I checked that volume manager applet in gnome-applets 2.14.1 (current stable
version) has the same routine I've committed. And gweather-applet.c,v 1.105
2006/02/01 14:57:01 doesn't have the handler in Koders' one. It is removed and
uses libgnome-panel's routine right now.
Also I've found a notes in ChangeLog of gwether
2004-02-26 Dennis Smit <email@example.com>
* gweather-applet.c (gweather_applet_create):
Connect a signal to change_background.
Added function and handle background changes.
Doesn't work for pixmap backgrounds yet.
I'll dig more later.
Could you try r3472?
FYI, panel_applet_set_background_widget() API is available only
gnome-panel-2.14.x and later.
Currently it cannot compile due to the GNOME version problem. Please enclose the
panel_applet_set_background_widget() into a conditional compilation fragment
like GTK_CHECK_VERSION() (I don't know such thing for GNOME).
I'm upgrading my GNOME to 2.14 and I'll report the result once it finished.
OK. I'll modify configure.ac.
I've updated GNOME to 2.14, and the your latest code works fine. Thank you.
