Emission hooks for parent-set signal.

I went into troubles adding an emission hook for parent-set signal. By
adding the hook, I receive a warning:

GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion `object->ref_count >
0' failed

Looking at the GTK source(2.12.11). What happens seems to be

(1) When I close a toplevel window, gtk_widget_destory is invoked.
(2) in gtk_widget_destroy, the toplevel window unref()s itself, then
unparent()s all of its children. The ref_count of the toplevel window
becomes zero.
(3) In gtk_widget_unparent, an parent-set signal is emitted, with the
destroying toplevel window as a parameter.
(4) g_signal_emit collects destroying toplevel and emit the hook. When
the toplevel is collected, a ref() is invoked, and the program gives the

I am not sure if this is correct, but apparently there is no way to fix
the problem unless I don't add a hook to parent-set.
