[Bug 1149886] [NEW] gtk-window-decorator leaks pixmaps


Public bug reported:

gtk-window-decorator leaks pixmaps and pixmap memory. This was addressed
previously, but seems to have regressed.

To reproduce:
1) Open a terminal (gnome-terminal) and launch xrestop. Observe the number of pixmaps and amount of pixmap memory used by the gtk-window-decorator process
2) Open another terminal window. Observe that the number of pixmaps and amount of pixmap memory used by gtk-w-d goes up
3) Close the second terminal window. Observe the number of pixmaps / pixmap memory

Expected results:
Closing a window releases all resources attached to the window including pixmaps and pixmap memory

Actual results:
gtk-window-decorator retains one pixmap and 100KB+ from the old window.

This is reproducible on my system with other apps, not just terminal
windows. After a few days' of usage, gtk-window-decorator has nearly
100MB of pixmap memory.

Sample xrestop output:

After step 1:
res-base Wins  GCs Fnts Pxms Misc   Pxm mem  Other   Total   PID Identifier    
2600000   167   66    1  140  316    15393K     13K  15407K  2439 gtk-window-dec

After step 2:
2600000   186   66    1  143  319    15639K     14K  15653K  2439 gtk-window-dec

After step 3:
2600000   167   66    1  141  317    15538K     13K  15552K  2439 gtk-window-dec

Notice the that between steps 1+2, 3 pixmaps were created. Only 2 were
released (or all 3 were released and another was created?) between steps
2 and 3.
