My theory is that bug 61884 originates from a double deletion of the 'qwid' variable. Qt manages the deletion of 'QWidget' objects via its parent-child relationship system. For instance, if you create a `QPushButton` as a child of a 'QMainWindow', the button will be automatically deleted when the main window is closed and deleted. I'm working on a fix.

This fix reverted what was introduced to fix bug #61884 (but which was clearly imperfect). I haven't checked but I presume that bug is back (see comment #7 for latest info on that bug). If so, can we reach a common fix?

1. Open an empty TeXmacs document.
2. Keep only this document open. Close any other TeXmacs windows.
3. Open the search dialog. Type something into it.
4. Without closing the search window, go to the "File" menu and click on "Close TeXmacs".

This should produce this error: "view attached to other window" (line 389 in new_view.cpp).

This error occurs because TeXmacs is attempting to open the "Do you want to save the file?" dialog for the buffer of the search window.
