[Geany-devel] [geanygdb plugin] Crash with "X Window System error" when deactivating

Hi there.

When I open Geany, go to plugin manager, activate geanygdb plugin and 
deactivate it immediately, geany crashes reporting the following:

-------------------- 8< --------------------

The program 'geany' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 10169 error_code 3 request_code 3 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

-------------------- 8< --------------------

Same thing happens when I just activate the plugin and exit Geany. It 
crashes at exit with the same message (except "serial", which is 
different every time).

This time I could not debug and find the error. Hmm... should I post 
this to the bug tracker then?

Best regards,
