So I got this to work by creating a container class to encapsulate an  
NSWindow, and creating a delegate that sets the NSWindow slot in the  
container to nil when windowWillClose: is called.  Still, it seems  
very odd that one should have to jump through this kind of hoop.  I  
would expect naively written mac apps to be crashing regularly trying  
to perform operations on closed NSWindows, and yet they don't.  Is  
this just one of those things that all Cocoa programmers just know?
