detaching a notebook tab

Hello all,

My app has a collection of objects which can be viewed either individually or in a tabbed viewer based on GtkNotebook. When objects are being viewed in the latter way, the user is supposed to be able to drag an object out of the tabbed viewer, with the effect of giving it its own window.

This works fine with gtk 2.24.28, but I'm getting a segfault with the same code on gtk 3.16.4. This looks like a gtk bug, but maybe I'm doing something wrong and before I file a report I'd be grateful if anyone could take a look at minimal test case below.

The idea is to start the program, switch to the second page in the notebook, and try dragging the tab onto the root window. With gtk3
I get a crash, preceded by the message

Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_get_frame_clock: assertion 'GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

Here's the minimal code:

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

                                         GtkWidget *page,
                                         gint x, gint y,
                                         gpointer data)
