Call gtk_object_destroy() on it.  Remember, a canvas item is a
regular GtkObject.

Not sure what you're getting at here.  The canvas will continue to
display an item for as long as it's in memory (and in the canvas).  As
soon as you destroy it (i.e. remove it from memory), the canvas will no
longer display it.  You have to keep all displayed items in memory for
the duration.
