It crashes whenever I mouse over a scroll-bar. I can open and browse
capture files (including using BytesView) just fine as long as I
perform the mouse gymnastics necessary to avoid touching a scrollbar.
As soon as that happens, it crashes.

Disabling liboverlay-scrollbar and reverting to normal GTK scrollbars
works fine, which seems to point the finger at liboverlay-scrollbar,
not us, but I'll still run the bisection.
