Sealing a tub drain

Well, I thought it was easy.  Lay down a ring of plumbing putty and screw 
the drain back in place.  Wipe excess away.

But it leaks after a few [days to weeks] when my daughter fills the tub.  I 
finally just laid a bead around the installed drain and keep pushing it back 
into place.

I've been tempted to apply silicone something-or-other and hope that works, 
but there has to be a real solution.  Now that she's off at college, I have 
a chance to attack it without interruption.

Any suggestions?
