[PATCH weston] gl-renderer: Fix an invalid write when closing a Weston window

Hi Daniel,

Forgot to mention: this only happens when using the wayland backend, not
x11. It's triggered by the next call to eglMakeCurrent (when the remaining
window is repainted), so it might not happen immediately, either. I'm using
an Intel graphics card and Mesa 12.0.3.

I actually saw the comment in gl_renderer_destroy and searched for Mesa
bugs, but found this email:
"[...] An EGLSurface is current for a context from eglMakeCurrent up until
eglMakeCurrent is called for the conetxte with another surface or the
context is destroyed.  The wl_egl_surface (the native window object) has to
be available (can not be destroyed) for the entire time the EGLSurface
(Though it's from 2013, so maybe things have changed since.)

There was also a similar fix for the simple-egl client a while ago:
