The display SMOB (i.e. the SMOB cells on the heap).

If I understand correctly, this whole scenario is only difficult if
both "resource" and "display" SMOBs are GC'd in the same GC cycle.  So
it isn't possible that the cells used for the display SMOB are already
being reused.

(I think; it would be good if a GC expert could check my logic here.)

There isn't a function.  My code does this:

  if ((SCM_TYP16 (win->dsp) == scm_tc16_xdisplay) &&
    scm_x_destroy_window_x (window);

If it followed the pattern in most of libguile, it should instead be:

#define SCM_XDISPLAYP(x)  SCM_TYP16_PREDICATE (scm_tc16_xdisplay, x)

  if (SCM_XDISPLAYP (win->dsp) &&
    scm_x_destroy_window_x (window);
