     Eo *win, *box;
     win = efl_add(EFL_UI_WIN_CLASS, efl_main_loop_get(),
                efl_ui_win_type_set(efl_added, EFL_UI_WIN_TYPE_BASIC),
                efl_text_set(efl_added, "Hello World"),
                efl_ui_win_autodel_set(efl_added, EINA_TRUE));

                efl_content_set(win, efl_added),
                efl_gfx_hint_size_min_set(efl_added, EINA_SIZE2D(360, 240)));

I haven't looked deeply into it, but this looks right to me too.

I added a note about something that's unrelated to the change, just a mistake I noticed in the surrounding code if anyone wants to fix that. :)


Unrelated to this patch, but I just noticed this. This is probably not the right way of doing it. All that needs to be done is to compare the cursors and see if they are different (or potentially if end > start).
