Children are destroyed with the parent. See the GTK tutorial or chapter 3
of my book.

Doesn't look like it should leak. If you're using glibc/Linux, 
try memprof and see if it reports leaks. If memprof doesn't report a leak
then probably you're just using the wrong method to detect leaks. If it
does report a leak, then it will also report where the leak occurred.
