My goal is to use Qt gadgets with least modification
and align with the standard behavior as much as possible.

Yes. You need to double-click the cell
to open up the editor.
Single-click is not enough.

It is the same for a simple example
program using QTreeWidgetItem.
So, it is the standard behavior of the Qt library.

Same for me.
And the "17" is highlighted.

That is different from what I see on my machine
(matacity of Ubuntu).

After I double-clicked the cell, the entire "17" is high-lighted.
Backspace deleted "17" entirely for me.

The same behavior for a simple example,
and it makes sense since Backspace should delete the selected characters.

If Backspace does not work at all for you,
was it perhaps captured somewhere else on your machine?

I am re-implementing a new way to edit values.
It does not need to act as before.

I do not see such a weirdness either on my machine.
I see only the new value I am entering.

I have no idea what makes it work differently
for you.

It is a text string, "(none)",
which is not an empty string.

See init/Kconfig.

string "Default hostname"
default "(none)"
