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

That's what I would hope but it's sure not what I'm seeing.  I put
print commands in my iter_next function and I see that it is returning
the same sequence of 43 entries hundreds of times in succession, then
it stops and the updated view is finally displayed.  If I knew how
TreeView decides it has got enough data to redraw I'd know where to
look for the problem.   As it is I'm thoroughly stumped, mainly
because I don't understand what TreeView is looking for to know it's
time to stop calling iter_next.
