Sadly, GtkText is known to be a bit buggy. However the code is more or
less unfixable (without a complete rewrite). So there is a new text
widget in the next version of GTK+.

There's a GtkExText available on the net that's pretty much the same
API as GtkText, only less broken. If you're doing something with
GtkText beyond simply sticking it in a window and getting/setting its
contents, using GtkExText is not a bad idea.
