[Interest] QML TextArea confusion

Hey all. I'm writing a Qt Quick app, binding properties of various
Controls to a QObject subclass that can work it's C++ magic. One such
property, belonging to TextArea, is 'text'. I have a QObject subclass
with a QString to store what the user types, which is accessible to
QML via the Q_PROPERTY macro (with a read/write/notify).

I'm finding that TextArea can successfully read the property from the
QObject subclass (I've given the QString a default value for debugging
purposes), but changes to the TextArea (user enters or removes text)
are not written back to it. Any thoughts on what I may be doing wrong?
I'm concerned I'm missing something obvious. I've created a simple
example which can be found at
https://github.com/ZestyMeta/Misc/tree/master/TextArea . FWIW this is
w/ Qt 5.2.1

P.S. I'm unclear on the etiquette for including code on mailing lists,
let me know if I should add it inline in the future.
