    removed from the cache in `GtkSettings`.
    So when reopening again a `GdkDisplay`, if the new address matches one
    of the previously closed display, the cache will return the existing
    `GtkSettings` from the cache, which still holds a reference to the old
    `GdkScreen` which was freed along the `GdkDisplay`.
    To avoid the issue, make sure to remove the `GdkDisplay` and
    corresponding `GdkSettings` when closing the `GdkDisplay`.
    Also, care must be taken not to recreate the `GdkSettings` and re-add
    the `GdkDisplay` to the cache once the display is closed, and make sure
    callers of `gtk_settings_get_for_display()` can deal with a returned
    value being `NULL` if the display is closed.
