[Bug 962085] [NEW] [] gtk-window-decorator receives BadWindow errors


Public bug reported:

That was not happening with r3035 but is happening regularly
with from staging, the decorator exits with

"The program 'gtk-window-decorator' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 43121 error_code 3 request_code 20 minor_code 0)"

it happened so far when:
- closing a dialog
- closing an application
- changing workspace
- right click on the decorator bar

i.e seems to happen randomnly

I tried to get a stracktrace by breaking on gdk_x_error but the decorate
hits an XError every time something is closed which makes it impossible
to debug it this way...
