Is the above code really safe?
You're passing the address of "text" to the function
gtk_entry_set_text(). Next you g_free() that address, so AFAIK the
memory manager marks it as free.
Isn't it dangerous? I mean, after g_free() any call that requests for
memory (g_strdup, g_malloc, ...) can overwrite that memory chunk,
changing the text in the GtkEntry. Am I right?
