Re: gtk.TreeModel.iter_children() method, how often should it be called?

Did some more  checking and inserted some debugging statements, I found that:

on_iter_next is called 23808 times after updating one line in my
43-element tree.  That''s almost twenty-four thousand times!  I'm
going to try to find a way to implement your idea but I'd really like
to know:

What makes TreeView stop calling iter_next and wait for the next event?

As I mentioned previously, the first time my 50-element tree is
displayed, I get a call for each line in the tree as expected. After
updating just one of those lines,  I get almost 24000 calls.

I just don't understand enough to know where to look for the trouble,
hence the question.
