I've tried your suggestion however when the canvas is destroyed the  canvasitem
that is associated with the gtkwidget is destroyed and subsequently performs a
gtk_widget_destroy() on the gtkwidget. Calling gtk_widget_ref() before destroying
the canvas doesn't seem to keep the widget from being destroyed along with the
canvasitem. The only thing so far that I have found to work is setting the
gnomecanvasitem->widget to NULL before destroying the canvas. From looking at the
code for gnome_canvas_widget_destroy() this will work. What I haven't determined
yet is if there are any side effects from doing this.
