Hmm, I can sort of see the logic in this, but it's inconsistent with
behaviour in other lists.  I think we've proposed (and you've
implemented) Ctrl+PgUp/Dwn as the shortcuts for horizontal scrolling in
some other controls, perhaps this is what should be implemented here?

I believe this behaviour has or will be implemented in GtkTreeView...
will/does the gtk-2.0 dropdown combo use GtkTreeView to implement its
dropdown part?  If so, I guess we don't have to do any work, otherwise
we might have to consider if it's worth implementing here to be
consistent with other list controls.

This latter behaviour is dependent on whatever decision we reach about
activating the default button in a dialog, which reminds me I need to
raise that with the usability team again...
