Oh, that might be a palette error. The palette invoker tries to get the
path at the pointer and the icon_view replys differently to the tree_view
:(  Try using this too:

The palette issue is:
 1. Making stuff not crash: the tree_view is different api wise to the
 2. Making the palette actually show: this was my issue

And the whole thing with the stars is weird. The events like toggle don't
seem to be passed on normally to the cell renderer. The (gtk) model code
also has a major bug that prevents you from changing the values of a
inserted row (a name error or something funny).
