Have you tried having your application call gtk_widget_grab_focus() on the
newly created widget?  Sometimes it isn't immediately clear what widget in
your application has the focus when it starts, so you can force the issue this

The focus traversal key, often Tab, should allow you to cycle through until
you get those debugging statements you added.  If neither works, then I'm not
sure what the problem is.
