You don't want to be using Unparent(). Unparent() is an internal method
for use when implementing the OnRemoved method in a Gtk.Container
subclass. To remove a widget from its parent, call its parent's Remove()

	whateverItemShelfsParentIs.Remove (itemShelf);

or if you don't have a reference to its parent handy, you could do:

	((Gtk.Container)itemShelf.Parent).Remove (itemShelf);
