Thanks Matthias,

Somewhere in my app I'm guessing that I'd need to provide a handler (callback) function to get called whenever the 'changed' signal gets emitted.  Do you know of an example anywhere that I could study?  From looking at the API list for GtkRecentManager it's not obvious how I'd set up the callback function.  Thanks,
