All right, then I'll only do some memory freeing in this method.

I've made some tests and it looks like within the "dispose" method, the
ref_counter is still 1, so I assume the "dispose" method gets called
before the "finalize" method when an object is being free'd (this is
what I can see from the gobject.c file l.423). 

So I assume I can emit signals from within the "dispose" method, and the
I have quite a lot of modifications to be done on some objects.

Is there any way to make sure about that way of doing things?
