Is the patch committed? I'd like to see what you changed. I've spent
the last hour mucking with the toolbar text boxes and I'm amazed how
many times the handler gets called. On my system, a blue box (usually
focus) is around the box forever (or until you click on another one) and
a lot of keys, numlock on or no, trigger the handler for selection
changed. The '-' key and backspace in particular. But clicking
anywhere in the text gets it too. Strangely enough, selecting a zoom
change causes a selection change event in all the boxes, while changing
to header one only triggers header and font.

I'd just convinced myself something deep and strange was going on - Ill
be glad to be corrected....
