test case

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch the attached test case.
2. Launch the attached event listener in a terminal
3. Type some text or html in the text entry at the bottom
4. Press the various push buttons to insert or append the text into the textarea or list item

Expected result: At step 4, text-changed events with the would be seen.
Actual result: At step 4, no text-changed events are seen.

Additional note: in the case of Gtk, the events should also have the 'system' suffix because the text is not being inserted directly by the user (i.e. by typing or pasting).

Would you mind sharing the WIP patch you have here? I'd like to take a look to it, if possible.

Might have it in dropbox somewhere. Sorry about that. Things just keep "coming up" that compete for my attention and time. In the meantime, I don't want to block you on this.
