Hmph.  In trying to build a testcase for this I think I've discovered
that we _do_ already gc Damages when their drawables die; it's just
harder to see because it's done as a callback from miext/damage's
wrappers around Destroy{Pixmap,Window}.

Which, I suspect, means my original patch was simply correct.  But I'll
keep digging.
