I would like to review this but I do not understand what problem it is solving, besides a double initialization.
Is there a console output I should look at?

@segfaultxavi he's referring to evas_object_textblock.c:13539 where textblock sets "" during object creation, making this call redundant and also harmful in the case where a string is passed during the constructor as in the example provided.

You can check a text in elementary_test -to 'efl.ui.slider'with this patch.

OK, I run the efl.ui.slider elementary_test with and without the patch and NOW I understand the problem: There was missing text.

Besides the technical description of the problem (the string was being overridden) , it is always helpful to start with one line giving a high-level description (there was missing text).
This patch is simple enough and perfectly-OK, I'm just saying this to simplify future reviews :)
