In this particular case, I ran into the problem when retrieving the same
value through two different places:


(or something like that) that returns the GdkWindow to one of the
borders (we use a border on the right in the debugger).

And the other window coming from the event handler.  Grep for `Equals'
in the debugger/frontend/gui/*.cs to see where and why its being used.
