Short description of error
With certain multi window setup, blender crashes when closing one of the windows.
It seems only to happen with the Mesa drivers though as @Jeroen Bakker (jbakker) wasn't able to reproduce this on his AMD card with the proprietary drivers

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open this file:
  2. Close the window with the bark texture in it.
  3. Blender crashes

@Clément Foucault (fclem), Jeronen took a quick look at this and it might be a race condition or something on our end. What is your take on this?

This actually seems to be related to tiling window managers. It seems to crash only if the main window is resized to fill the desktop as the other is closed.
This seems to be a bug in newer Mesa versions.
