Yes. Debian stable means it is as stable as we can get it with our man  
power, it is not perfect, though.

The point is that the cause of your error lies in libwnck. This  
library is not maintained upstream anymore. In Debian, for stable  
distribution releases, we do fix stuff regularly, if the fixes are not  
too invasive.

With libwnck(2), this is different, because (a)

   (a) no upstream developer has ever worked on a fix, and will not...
   (b) Debian package maintainers normally don't have time and expertise
       to fix upstream code, esp. if the changes are expected to possibly break
       other things, require deep testing, etc.
   (c) there is a fix in sight: Debian 9 (to be released in a few
       weeks from now), with MATE 1.16 (built against GTK-3 and libwnck3).
