Sometimes I have got random crashes on Linux with GTK IDE Backend. It seems that I have found cause.

How to reproduce? (It is hard)

1. Run IDE.
2. Try to double click on assembly name (Do this fast).
3. If evrything is OK. Press cancel.
4. Repeat points 2 & 3 untile the error occures.

Maybe something like this can help:

String Ctrl::RenderPrimarySelection(const Value& fmt)
    return sel_ctrl ? sel_ctrl->GetSelectionData(fmt) : String();

To make sure that sel_ctrl is not null ptr (I can be wrong, beacuse I don't fully understand this code). On the other hand this problem is serious, beacuse it can leads to random crashes on GTK backend.

Patch ready +/-.

Even "Enviroment Settings" stop crashing.
