By way of more background data, I found the same thing with a Gtk::EventBox 
within a system tray ("notification area") container (which uses the 
GtkPlug/GtkSocket interface, but I just adopted the libegg trayicon 'C' stuff 
to save having to write my own system tray code).  I got the message whenever 
the event box was unembedded (unplugged) from from the libegg systray 
container - that is, whenever the "destroy" signal was emitted.  It didn't 
occur when the event box was first plugged in (that is, when the "embedded" 
signal was emitted).

I spent some time trying to trace it - from instrumentation I added it was 
definitely calling the Gtk::Window overridden version of manage() but I just 
couldn't work out how it could possibly happen.  I looked at the reference 
counting code and couldn't find anything wrong.  Program execution was fine, 
but it was just calling Gtk::Window::manage() for no apparent reason at all.

Although program execution was fine I got a bit fed up with the bizarre 
behaviour and went down to the C level and used a GtkEventBox, and that 
worked fine.  (If you want to look at the code read through tray_icon.cpp in ).
