	That sounds very much as if the de-activate is not working properly,
and/or the control is in the wrong 'auto-merge' state thing. I believe
the default for that is still stupid.

	Hmm; most odd, are you quite sure that no ref counting leak has crept
into nautilus or the a component ? this used to work fine for me [ but
is somewhat fragile wrt. user-created reference leaks ].

	Quite possibly just a bug; what would be useful would be for you to do:
bonobo-slay; export ORBIT2_DEBUG=traces; nautilus [ with an ORBit2
compiled with --enable-debug ] and post a link to the trace so we can
see what's going on.
