I have had very similar problems.  To find the row immediately before the 
selected row I had to have two Gtk::TreeModel::Children::iterator objects, 
one less advanced than the other, and then iterate through the list store 
from the beginning until the more advanced one equalled 
Gtk::TreeView::get_selected()->selection().  I imagine there must be a better 
way of doing it (it is is quite inefficient with a large list), but I 
couldn't work it out from the documentation (such as it is).  It is 
surprising that a Gtk::ListStore object doesn't have bidirectional interators 
(although I can see that may be a problem with a Gtk::TreeStore object).

Finding out if the iterator returned by 
Gtk::TreeView::get_selected()->selection() points to the last row seemed 
rather easier.  Copy it to another Gtk::TreeModel::iterator (or to a 
Gtk::TreeModel::Children::iterator), increment the copy, and see if it equals 
Gtk::ListStore::children()->end().  It worked for me, but it wouldn't 
surprise me if there is a better way.  (I do not understand the error you 
report: that doesn't seem right, so there may be some other problem with your
