Bug Description

When the "export" file dialog is shown (after pressing the "Export" button), it disappears suddenly after a few seconds, without user intervention.


- Launch gnome-sound-recorder
- Record some sound
- Press the STOP button to end recording
- Press the "OK" button to confirm the recording
- Press the "Export" button; a file dialog will be shown
- Wait

After a variable number of seconds (between two and ten), the dialog will close suddenly, without user intervention. It should last until the user chooses a file, or press cancel.

It seems a problem with the garbage collector, because the file selector widget is stored in a local variable. Storing it in a property of the object seems to fix it (patch attached).
