A quick comment.  I guess I wasn't subtle enough in my last mail.  I hate
to do this to Pete.  Pete broke the text widget VERY BADLY since the last
version I gave him.  This is why it crashed when newlines were inserted.
This is why it redraws and recomputes everything when you run your test.
When I fix it once again, it won't redraw the whole widget at each insertion.
Also, selection doesn't work yet.  I'll get out a new version sometime.
I think I'll also try to implement embedded widgets, then we can decide
how the performance is.

Also, have you proposed how to fix the size negotiation stuff?
