Despite submitting this patch to the Gtk+ developers, I thought that it could receive a greater reception with the Gentoo crew, so that is why I am submitting it here too.
This patch enables a new feature on Gtk's right-click context that allows one to "Clear" the contents of a textbox. It is disabled by default, but one can enable it by setting GTK_SUPERFLUOUS_ADDITIONS=1 and starting the respective application.
Before arbitarily deeming this as unsafe, consider trying the patch.

in general we do not add patches that will not make it into the main tree...
we need the requested info in comment #4 before we will consider adding this.
