What I suspect is happening is that once a column is sorted, the column is
resorted as soon as a change is made so path never points to the current
row. Though doesn't happen with a plain text renderer.

I have tested this with my code, and this is exactly what is happening

Before the edited function is called, the liststore is sorted again, so the
path string points to the row that is now at the previous position (ie:the
next row)

If the change made does not mean the row is sorted to a different position
then the same row is referenced, example
(where the first is value in column 0 and second is a fixed row indicator)
in both cases this the first row

Sort reorders the rows
/data/staging -> /data/staging2
/data/1staging       2

Sort does not reorder row
/data/staging -> /data/1staging
/data/1staging       1
