[vtkusers] How to "undo" GetRenderWindow()->Render()?

Hi Dan,

yes, kind of. The problem is, that with a lot of tabs I'm getting:

Maximum number of clients reached
ERROR: In [...]/VTK/Rendering/OpenGL/vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow.cxx, line 530
vtkXOpenGLRenderWindow (0x32b207d0): bad X server connection. DISPLAY=:0. Aborting.

calling chart->SetVisible(false) doesn't help unfortunately. I need to completely destroy the view somehow in hideEvent.
