this seems like possibly a bug in gtk because the GtkTreeView has search enabled, I've set a search column and supplied a search callback.

I can confirm it doesn't work but I can't figure out why. Maybe gtk doesn't think the treeview is focused even though I've clicked inside the treeview first?

I'm also tempted to just close this because I honestly don't think anyone truly cares about this feature. No one except people used to the way gtk works would even be able to figure out how to do this.
