Description of Problem:

Pressing a key when GtkList has focus should make the list scroll
to the next item whose name begins whith the letter of the key pressed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

1. Open a file using File->Open in gnotepad+
2. Press i.e. '.'.
3. Wait for the list to scroll to a file that begins with a dot.
Actual Results:

Expected Results:

The list scolls.

Additional Information:
When a GtkList has has lots of items it can be very frustrating using the mouse, arrow keys or Page{Up,Down} to jump to, or close to the desired item. An effective way to scroll the GtkList on a general basis is needed.

The replacement list widget in GTK+-2.0 has an interactive search
feature that handles this; when we switch over to GTK+-2.0, we'll
get this capability.
