If you are working with known values in the ComboBox, then you could do
something like this:

switch (gconfValue) {

case "foo":
	comboBox.Active = 0;

case "bar":
	comboBox.Active = 1;

case "foobar":
	comboBox.Active = 2;

The store of a ComboBox is available through the Model property. To get
the current selection for example:

TreeIter iter;
if (comboBox.GetActiveIter (out iter)) {
	string name = (string) comboBox.Model.GetValue (iter, 0);
