As far as I know, that's not possible. You can replace the widget that 
appears left of the arrow(like GtkComboBoxEntry does) but not the 
dropdown portion.

Don't know the answer, but you can look into the code of the date 
editing widget from the HollyWidgets 
library(http://code.google.com/p/holly-gtk-widgets/) to see how it's 
done there.
