[Gtk-sharp-list] Treeviews and popups, and easy way?

I had exactly the same problem(after a click with the right mouse button only the item that was clicked on remains selected). There are basically two ways two work around this problem: 

One would be to use the ConnectBefore attribute(overriding OnButtonPress won't work because it sometimes gets called afterthe TreeView processed the event and updated the selection). (In my opinion using the attribute isn't "hackish" at all)

Another one would be to drop the idea of the context menu and instead making the column titles clickable. The disadvantage is that this functionality won't be easy to discover.
