This signal was probably a "key-binding" or "action" signal that should be
used only by accessibility tools. You weren't meant to use it, and that's
why it was removed in gtkmm 2.4.

Also, it was probably completely undocumented, so it would be difficult
for you to say whether it worked without knowing what it should do.

It would be better for you to say what you are trying to do, and maybe
someone can suggest a way to do it.

Maybe you want to respond to every move of the cursor in a textview. I
don't know whether that is possible.
