     Here's a patch for testing.  It works for me.

     John: would you mind applying this patch and verifying that I
     didn't break anything with earlier GTK+ versions?  Also--is it a
     sufficient test to add a few variables in the variable sheet and
     then put a couple of values in each?  That's what I did, anyhow.
To build I had to add the following code:

#if ! GTK_CHECK_VERSION (2,14,0)
static guint16
gtk_entry_get_text_length (GtkEntry *entry)
  return entry->text_length;

Otherwise, I didn't notice any problem.

Regarding testing, you should also make sure that hitting the <Del> key
in one  of the cells in the data sheet does something sensible.  
In the stable branch, it simply clears the cell ready for new input, but
doesn't actually update any value.  This behaviour is changed in 0.7.x which
replaces the value with SYSMIS.
