Oh, in that case you should connect to the "mark_set" signal of the text
buffer.  The cursor position is kept in a buffer mark (named "insert"),
so when the cursor moves, the mark is moved, and the signal is emitted. 
You can take a look at the glimmer module which does exactly this
(prints the cursor position in a status bar).
