In GTK+-1.2 there is a limit on window size to ~32768 pixels.
GtkList uses a single big window, and thus can only hold
a limited number of rows.

This is why GtkList is generally not used, and GtkCList is used 


[ Also, note for GtkList, there is a widget created for row, so
  80,000 items would take a _lot_ of memory ]
