Hello, here is the new version of the fix with the test attached.

While writing the test I have noticed some additional references which also were not removed and could lead to a memory leak, so now the following references are cleaned:
1. References from X11InputMethod which were reported in an original CR
2. References from CompositionAreaHandler
3. References from the Caret timer. It is not critical, as these references were removed at the time of the next caret blink, however now it is cleaned immediately.

The new webrev is available here:

Best, Petr.
