You are most likely using incorrect prototypes for your signal

Not all signal handlers are of the form

	void handler (GtkObject *object, gpointer user_data);

For example, event signals in widgets expect

	gint handler (GtkWidget *object, GdkEvent *event, gpointer user_data);

And then again, clist's select_row is like this:

	void handler (GtkCList *clist, gint row, gint column, GdkEvent *event, gpointer user_data);

The easiest way to figure out what the various signals expect is to
look in the Gtk header files.  Look for the *Class structure
definitions (i.e. GtkWidgetClass, GtkCListClass) and see what
parameters the signal handlers expect.  The class structures contain
pointers to the class' handler; for your own functions, just append a
user_data pointer to those prototypes.

For example, if you look at gtkclist.c, you'll see this:

	struct _GtkCListClass
	  GtkContainerClass parent_class;


	  void   (*click_column)        (GtkCList     *clist,
					 gint          column);


So if you want to connect to the click_column signal, use a function
	void my_click_column_handler (GtkCList *clist, gint column, gpointer user_data);
