What I think that happens is:
The constructor TGTK2WIDGETSET.CREATE fails somehow, unclear from this 
back trace, but probably before or in im_context:=gtk_im_multicontext_new;

The destructor is called which tries to cleanup im_context, which fails, 
because im_context has not been intialized correctly.

This particular crash may be prevented by using this destructor:
destructor TGtk2WidgetSet.Destroy;
   if im_context<>nil then
   inherited Destroy;

Nevertheless, it doesn't solve the exception in the constructor on
