I totally agree. The problem is that I'm unable to delete a window from
the outside as there is no gtk_window_delete() or gtk_widget_delete()
function. The only way to ever get a "delete_event" is when I close the
window from the window manager.
See the gtk docs for more details
I've pored over them for days now. I've also tried to somehow "send" a
"delete" event to the window in question, but apart from the fact that
the docs are full of "don't do this!" warnings on this subject, I also
didn't get it to work.
