I started some days ago to write some smart pointer classes for the Gtk
port (using g_free or g_object_ref/unref) that should be able to fix
some issues (I already fixed several memory leaks).

Now I just started to use valgrind to find other memory leaks, so this
and other issues should be hopefully fixed soon.
