This is by no means an authoritative answer, but you might try one of
the following:

1) See if you can grab keypress events from the clist's parent toplevel window.
(e.g. connect to keypress events for the window)

2) Try putting the clist in an event box.  (I haven't had too much luck with
event boxes and keypress events yet myself, so I don't know about this one.)

3) Are you certain that the clist has keyboard focus?  If not, try focusing
the widget first.
