As the title explains, once a widget has been created,
remove'ing it does not free the memory and unset'ing it
does not either. This is particularly bad for long running
gtk apps.

The same happens with the CLI php without GTK however disableing the fast cache does deal with this.

The Bug still appears on my System. Win2000, PHP 4.3.11-dev, and php-gtk-1.0.1a for windows... The memory will not be freed, after closing a window by the method destroy().
