The menu and toolbar callback user data pointers are not GtkObject pointers,
just raw data pointers. See all calls that take BonoboUIHandlerCallbackFunc

The simplest change I can think of is to change the set_callback and
get_callback functions to take destroy notify functions just as
gtk_object_set_data_full and gtk_signal_connect_full do. The alternative of
requiring that the callback data be a GtkObject would be much less

Thus you have to do an explicit set_callback call if you have interesting
data that needs a destroy. But most clients won't need the destroy function
and won't call set_callback or get_callback so won't be affected by this

(By the way, I suggest that the function type be renamed
BonoboUIHandlerCallback also.)
