That's an interesting issue. It looks like if you quit Textadept fast
enough after spawning a process (e.g. syntax checking after saving a
file), you might catch GTK in a state where Lua has been closed, but a
child process exit callback still needs to be called, and that callback
makes use of Lua.

I don't know if one can figure out if a Lua state is still "open", but
I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the report.
