Glade 3 simply _specifies_ a GtkComboBox, it doesn't say which type.

Yes, I'm talking about Glade-3.

not entirely enjoying it yet, ;=)
Still, it  is not very difficult to modify them, and add a simple
GtkListStore with just one column to obtain the same funcionality.

Assuming you made a one column ListStore, that's all there is to it.

Then afterward, you can use the selection of the model
