Context Menu not working on newly opened files

I've now taken the step and made the initialization synchronous again
in the TextEditorWidget constructor, the rest of the original commit
has been kept as subsequent changes depend on the new API.

Context menus should work again in master (they do for me) and
hopefully someone will find the time to find out why the asynchronous
initialize call causes a problem.
