Heh. You're starting to discover things that nobody is supposed to know.
There is no direct signal for Combo changed, but you can catch the
Combo's entry's insert_text/delete_text or changed and it will work,
though it will call your callback many times. The Combo is a container,
wrapping a button and an entry, and only the entry actually holds the
state the Combo is in. So:

    combo.entry.connect("changed", my_callback)

And be glad you're not using an OptionMeny, because there *is no such
thing* for gtk1.2's OM.
