What exactly do you mean by this? Are you talking about multiselect

About the patch itself. I cannot really judge the code, but I also don't
see any obvious errors.
There are a few places where the indentation is not correct:
+ tindex = malloc(sizeof(int) * count);
+ indices = q_get_indices(q);
+ if((result != NULL) && bool_var==1)
+ printf ("Option %d active\n", i);
+ copy = g_strdup(result);
+ /* by default the first row gets selected if no default option is specified */
+ gtk_tree_model_get_iter_first (model,&iter);
+ path = gtk_tree_model_get_path (model, &iter);
Alright, tomorrow i'll do some makeup to the patch before committing :)
