There are a few problems with your code:

	* The instance that is created by Glade is not of type AccountsWindow,
	  it is of type `Window'.

	* You are not allowed to assign to `this', MCS flags that as an error,
	  you might be using an old version, and that explains the corruption.

I would suggest that you do have a container class that holds all the
information, but does not necessarily derive from Window:

class AccountsWindow {
	[GtkWidget] Window accountsWindow;

	public AccountsWindow ()
		Glade.XML gui = new Glade.XML (...);
		gui.AutoConnect (this);
