Refer to this:



  "Invocation time: Last call to g_object_unref for an instance of
target type."

  "Finalize is expected to complete the destruction process initiated by
dispose. It should complete the object's destruction. finalize will be
executed only once. finalize should chain up to its parent
implementation just before returning to the caller.
