This is indeed tricky. Ok this is what I think you have to do.

CellRendererCombo render = new CellRendererCombo();
render.EditingStarted += OnEditingStarted;

void OnEditingStarted( object o, EditingStartedArgs args )
     if ( args.Editable is Gtk.ComboBoxEntry ) {
          Gtk.ComboBoxEntry editable = args.Editable as Gtk.ComboBoxEntry;
          editable.Entry.Completion = new EntryCompletion();
          // so on so forth

I think this is close if not the answer you want. I havent tested this
though. I got some of this info from
http://www.pygtk.org/docs/pygtk/class-gtkcellrenderer.html. Well, hope it
