Note that to make a usable Gambas GTK+3 component, I have to do a lot of 
horrible hacks and workarounds.

For example, you noticed that hitting CTRL+V inside the search box 
triggers the current editor menu shortcut instead of the textbox one, as 
anyone would expect. This is done -by design- by the GTK+ developer, and 
you will find a lot of complain on the internet about that.

Fixing that stupid behaviour inside GTK+ source code is just a matter of 
swapping four lines of code. Outside of it, i.e. inside the gb.gtk 
component, it becomes a hack.

These are these kind of hacks that I suspect.
