Bug#507097: Segmentation fault in GtkTrayIcon

When using epiphany-gecko, downloading files to disk causes a tray icon
to appear to notify that file(s) are being downloaded.

However, every two or three downloads makes Epiphany segfault. I
installed the necessary debug packages and got the following backtrace:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

(gdb) p icon
$1 = (GtkTrayIcon *) 0x2044220
(gdb) p icon->priv
$2 = (GtkTrayIconPrivate *) 0x0

I can reproduce this easily by simply right clicking on links and
choosing "Save Link As". It appears to work for the first 2-3
downloads and a tray icon appears, but then it segfaults in the
aforementioned fashion.

The files I downloaded to cause the segfault have all been small and
seeing that icon->priv was NULL then the download had completed and the
GtkTrayIconPrivate instance freed in the middle of something.

Anyway, I attach a patch which appears to fix my problem, but I'm not
confident it's the "correct" fix, and I haven't been able to thoroughly
test it. Comments welcome!

Kind regards,
