Bug seen in up-to-date linux and windows builds.

Steps to reproduce:

launch texmacs. In the developer menu open the symbol browser. Select any item in the list (e.g. "add-user") and click "see documentation". In the pop-up window click on the green "Definition..." to see the scheme code.

From that point on, if you ask to close texmacs from the menu, it throws an error:
TeXmacs] failed-error, Exception, view attached to other window
and some debug info is shown on the console (see attached file)

It does not matter if you close the window showing the scheme code and/or the symbol browser before asking to close TeXmacs from the menu: the error will occur in any case, and as many time as you try. On the other hand, if you click the main window's closing button, TeXmacs does close. It seems it's the only way to close it nicely.
