Bug Description

I'm getting a blank Properties window when i previously closes it by the window close/exit button.

Steps to reproduce:

- right click in some gtk3 indicator, click in Properties;
- closes the Properties window by the window close/exit button;
- try to open the Properties window again, and you will get a blank window.

Running xfce4-panel from the terminal, I get the following error message:
(wrapper-2.0:7138): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_container_foreach: assertion 'GTK_IS_CONTAINER (container)' failed

So this is either a regression in xfce4-indicator-plugin or in the xfce4-panel's wrapper2.

summary: - blanck Properties window

I was able to reproduce the indicator plugin blank window problem, if you continue using the "close" button, it will work fine until you use "X" to close the window.

If you click the "X" button to close the Properties window, it will not render properly the next time you open it. Using the "Close" button instead does not trigger the faulty behavior.

Terminal output:
  wrapper-2.0:7138): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_container_foreach: assertion 'GTK_IS_CONTAINER (container)' failed

Should be now fixed in:

I applied your patch and can confirm that it resolves the problem. Thanks!
