Thanks for the detailed traceback. The crash occurs within a GTK call,
more specifically `gtk_container_remove()`. Textadept keeps track of view
references properly, and since I've never seen this before, I'm thinking
it's a GTK problem :( (Also, the code around the crash has not been
changed in years.)

Do you still get the crash when you recompile Textadept yourself?
