Hmm.  OK.  Here's a patch that fixes that.  I couldn't figure out why
this behavior happens, so it just drops the requirement to visit every
page in the assistant.  The page that needs to get visited is the
final page, which is all that the assistant lets you skip to, so the
comment that gets deleted can be ignored.

I'm also attaching a gtksheet bug fix.  For whatever reason, clicking
the Last button triggered this GTK-critical that I hadn't seen
before.  Dunno why.
