  As for GtkEntry - the selection will be cleared, but the cursor won't jump
to oposite side of former selection. I think this is more intuitive than
windows' behaviour (of jumping to oposite end of former selection).

  Yes, I think that selection should disappear in this case - it's more

  What are you talking about? You can't move by words with shift-arrow under
windows - you can do it using control-arrow (and this works fine with gtk

 In general, my impression is that .gtkrc syntax should be slightly extended
to allow setting options (that control behaviour, not appearance). I guess
this isn't done yet since authors wished to override options by widget class
(using pattern matching) like other widget sets that use X resources, but that
would require a lot of efforts, so the implementation of this was postponed.
