my first thoughts were in that direction (e.g. an "expanded" flag in
dive_trip struct), but since i don't know
the code well enough, i've decided on this direction, which is more
complicated and less efficient (way to many iterations). :\

not sure why TBH. in the example XML it always crashes at idx = 7 (or was it 8).
also i've added a check if the selection iterator is not a trip in
tree_selected_foreach(). since this was also causing a crash -
if one select dives and trips and then right clicks a dive for "delete dives".

just realized the current master actually returns some Gtk-CRITICAL
and crashes which some of these patches solve.
e.g. right click (no selection) on the first dive in a trip and "delete dive".
i think i've caused this with delete_single_dive() in
delete_dive_cb(), but i've tested this multiple times for the previous
set of patches. it could be the XML somehow.

it will look much nicer, i think.
