Re: GtkTextMark right gravity

I am trying to mark a section of text within a GtkTextBuffer and then

I have done the following:

    /* mark the section */
    start_mark = gtk_text_buffer_create_mark(buffer, NULL, &iter, TRUE);
    gtk_text_buffer_insert(buffer, &iter, "Hello, this is some text", -1);
    end_mark = gtk_text_buffer_create_mark(buffer, NULL, &iter, FALSE);
    /* here is some more text */   
    gtk_text_buffer_insert(buffer, &iter, "some more text", -1);

    /* retrieve the section */
    gtk_text_buffer_get_iter_at_mark(buffer, &start, start_mark);
    gtk_text_buffer_get_iter_at_mark(buffer, &end, end_mark);
    text = gtk_text_buffer_get_text(buffer, &start, &end, FALSE);

When I get the text the "some more text" text is included if end_mark 
has left gravity set to false, but it is not included if end_mark has 
left gravity set to true. I want end_mark to be right gravity as I want 
insertions at the end of the section to remain within the marked section.

If end_mark has right gravity and you insert at end_mark, then the
inserted text should be to the left of end_mark, thus inside your
marked section.

Is the problem just how to keep "some more text" from being inside the
section? To do that you probably have to move the end_mark after
inserting "some more text", or create end_mark after inserting it, or
