I could be wrong, but I believe the GladeXML object is still there, even

glade_get_widget_tree function. Am I wrong?

Yes. glade_xml_new() returns an object that belongs to the caller - 
it creates a gtk+ heirarchy on behalf of the user. It does not keep
references to the widgets it created (it catches the "destroy" signal
to ensure its name_hash stays valid) furthermore, after freeing your
GladeXML object it is safe to call glade_get_widget_tree() on a widget
built by the freed GladeXML - glade_get_widget_tree() will return NULL.
