When entering a character in a curses.textpad.Textbox,
the character under the cursor is deleted instead of
being shifted when position. 

I attached a patch which implements the "Insert" mode.
Maybe you should make it customizable wheter the
Textbox should use the old "Overwrite" or the new
"Insert" mode.

I'm using python 2.3.3

This would be a new feature, so it's getting marked for 2.5.

I am getting
"RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded"

as soon as I type a character in a textbox made with insert_mode=True.
