This is no longer the case:

(Well, not normally the case, you can get this behavior with g_signal_emitv
if you _really_ need it.) 

But, in any case, this shouldn't be necessary in a bit, because one of
the main intents of the addition of closures is to enable overriding
the handling of the default handler.

That's what the 'class_closure' argument to g_signal_newv is for. 
Of course, currently, you can't override the class closure in derived
classes, but since that makes the whole thing pretty useful, I think
you can't count on that being fixed.
