Yes, that was the code. GTK does not release accelerators upon widget
destroy, and thus there remains a dangling pointer in accelerator group.
As soon as you try to add the same accelerator for a second time, it
tries to remove existing accelerator for now non-existent object and GTK
This is now fixed by always releasing all accelererators upon widget
