Problem stopping signal.

In my app I have a text box, a GtkEntry, and when certain keys are
pressed, I don't want anything to be added to the text box such as the
keypad enter.  So I connected the signal key_press_event for the main
widget, so I capture all the key-presses, which I handle the input
unless the GtkEntry is in focus which it then handles the input itself. 
My problem is when I get one of these keys I don't want to print out,
and the GtkEntry has the focus I can't get it to not put the char into
the Entry after the callback.  I tried
gtk_signal_emit_stop_by_name(text_box,"insert_text") but it says that
there are no current emissions (84) for GtkEntry.  What am I doing
