Exception from editor after it is destroyed

I've got the peculiar situation that in a very ajax heavy app sometimes I have to get rid of editors almost immediately after it has been added to the dom.

This works fine in most circumstances by calling editor.destroy() before removing the dom element that hosts it.

However If this happens on the first editor that is created, I always get an error out of core/editor.js:291 from onConfigLoad which still gets a callback after the configuration has loaded.

I'm not sure what the right fix is, as destroy() already seems to deregister the editor from all further events (though it doesn't catch this one).

This patch helped me work around the issue for now - but it is something that should be included in CKEditor I believe.

To reproduce it you would use something along the lines of this

var holder = $('<div><div id=editor>')
editor = CKEDITOR.replace(holder.find('#editor'))
// wait for the config to have loaded

This should rather look like this:

holder = $('<div><div id=editor>')
var editor = CKEDITOR.replace(holder.find('#editor'))
editor.on('instanceReady', function(evt){

Many things can be broken that way (not only this one):

editor = CKEDITOR.replace(holder.find('#editor'))
