Bug Description

Memory consumption increases everytime you make a search.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Note the initial memory usage
2. Make 10 random searches
3. Check the memory usage

For me the usage increases about 300 KiB per search.

Moving to libunity.
It's a bug easy to notice with all Python lenses, working with a large amount of results.

The issue is that the variants that get created while appending rows to the models do not get unreferenced - so it's an issue in python-gobject-introspection, and maybe we could workaround it in Dee.

I uploaded PyGObject 3.7.91 to raring now, which fixes tons of memleaks. This should help a lot with this particular bug as well, but I don't think it's fully fixed yet. I linked the remaining upstream bug which is related to this.
