Difficult to answer.  At least "Programming Example" in widget's info
(attached to this mail) doesn't work well.  Because `erase-buffer'
makes all overlays empty. Should remove-overlays be used in the
example?  Another idea is that adding an optional argument to
`erase-buffer' like

(defun erase-buffer (&optional delete-overlay-too)

If the user gives non-nil value to erase-buffer as the argument, all
overlays are also removed.

Anyway, overlays for button, sample and doc should be put evaporate.
See the attachd patch.
