Hmm.  Then if I change the gtk_signal_connect_object in simple.c
to a gtk_signal_connect, it should only get rid of the button,
not the whole window, right?  Or do I misunderstand?

I changed simple.c so that
  gtk_signal_connect_object (GTK_OBJECT (button), "clicked",
                             GTK_SIGNAL_FUNC (gtk_widget_destroy),
                             GTK_OBJECT (window));
  gtk_signal_connect (GTK_OBJECT (button), "clicked",
                      GTK_SIGNAL_FUNC (gtk_widget_destroy),
                      GTK_OBJECT (window));
and the behavior of the program stayed exactly the same.

I added a second button in a vbox, so that there would be something
left in the window after the button was destroyed in case the window
was closing down because it had no contents, but that had no effect
on this behavior.

Now, when I add two buttons, and want to destroy one of them by
clicking the other, it only works if I use gtk_signal_connect_object,
as expected.  If I only use gtk_signal_connect, I destroy the button
clicked instead of the "target" button.  So I really don't understand
why the changes to the original version with one button didn't have
the effect I expected...

Could someone elucidate?
