Re: Managing focus through a GtkSocket - anyone??

  See attached; should be straightforward to make. They're two
progs. ripped from the GTK examples.

  In essence: I want to be notified of focus within plugin
'text'. If you:

% ./text 0

  ... then moving the pointer in & out gives the focus-in event
to it: it prints "<text-event>".

  Hoever, the same thing as a plugin:

% ./rangewidgets &
[1] 9537
./text 0x8800015     # output from rangewidgets - type this in
% ./text 0x8800015

  ... puts text inside rangewidgets as expected, but nothing I
then do will cause 'text' to print out the event text - it seems
to just not get those events.

  Then I guess I'm probably doing something daft!

  It's a bit difficult to draw a parallel there; that sort of
thing works as I'd expect, but AFAIK none of it relies upon
receipt of focus events within the plugins.

  What I'm *actually* trying to do in plug [g]vim into a
GtkSocket. This 'does stuff' that it needs to when it knows it
has focus. But it never gets these events, and so never works

  This is my first hurdle as getting it to work properly. The
next is that key presses (left/right/etc.) ATM get processed by
both the rangewidgets meta-app *and* the plugin vim. But I'm
hoping that'll work better when I have this focus thing sorted.
