What version of WebKitGTK+ are you using. In trunk and in many past
releases the WebKitWebView instantiates a WebSettings object when it's
initialized (see webkit_web_view_init). I can't explain why your
WebSettings objects are dying, if you've managed the reference
counting properly. Perhaps if you are using a very old version there
was a bug though.
