gtk_cell_editable_start_editing() does not seem to do anything in this
case. But I think I had things backwards anyway.

I am now doing this:
- In my GtkCellRendererText::edited signal handler, store the invalid
inputed text and set a retry boolean, then call gtk_tree_view_set_cursor
() with start_editing = true.
- In my GtkCellRenderer::editing_started signal, if the retry boolean is
set, then cast the GtkCellEditable to GtkEntry and set its text to the 
previously-stored value. 

For the record, this is shown, with gtkmm, in the last 2 methods here:

I'm still not sure whether it's a good idea to start editing from inside
a GtkCellRendererText::edited signal handler, though.
