I see two options:

1. Make the palette listen for friends changes
2. See why the palette is not being disposed when it pops down

Ideally we would make both 1 and 2 but I think just 2 is the most
appropriate course of action.

You may need to read about reference counting and garbage collection
in Python in order to understand what's going on.
