Odd bug with TreeView column size

Hey all.  I've been seeing a strange little bug that I'm not sure how to
debug, so I hoped some people on the list could help me out.

I'm attaching sample code, but the basic issue is this:  the app has a
button that fills a ListStore with data.  For certain sets of data--I'm
not sure of the exact requirements, but the one provided does it for
me--the TreeView will expand horizontally to handle the increased size
necessary for the data, but some of the columns won't be filled
correctly-at first.  In this case, the 'Result' column, which should
hold 'failed' for the visible lines, instead holds a snippet of the text
in the 'Date Scheduled'.  However, this fixes itself if you mouse-over
each row, or if you put the window behind another and then bring it to
the front.  After that, it doesn't seem to be a problem for the
remainder of the program.

It's obviously not a big deal, but I'd like to find out what's
happening.  I'm not really sure how to start debugging this; if anyone
could help me out, I'd appreciate it.  Or, if it doesn't happen for
other people, I'd like to know that too--maybe it's something in our

To use the sample program, just click on the "Fill It" button, then
mouse over the rows in the TreeView and watch what happens.
