A bit more info: what seems to be happening is that the GtkPlug is 
reparented to the root window and gtk has decided that this is should 
not happen, so it sends a delete event. This of course makes the plugin 

I'm not sure if this is the expected behavior. Perhaps the plugin would 
later have been reparented to the socket on the new screen. That would 
mean that maybe I can't use this signal to exit the plugin. More work to 
be done... next year ;-)
