Description Massimo 2016-11-18 18:15:41 UTC
Setting GOBJECT_DEBUG=objects and comparing the ouput of 2
run of examples/bp/bloatpad, once pressing 
<Alt>-E <Esc> <Ctrl>-Q 
and once pressing
<Alt>-E <Esc> <Alt>-E <Esc> <Ctrl>-Q 
shows the number of GObjects alive at exit increases
for the presence of few GtkCheckMenuItem objects.

They're created here:
