If the window was garbage collected, it was deleted first, right?  My
testing indicates that deleting a window calls clear_mouse_face
indirectly (because deleting a window from a frame runs
frame_up_to_date_hook for that frame, where we call
note_mouse_highlight.  So this ought to work OK, I think.

Maybe we should invalidate mouse_face_window inside
delete-window-internal, to make sure this window is no longer
referenced in dpyinfo->mouse_highlight->hlinfo?
