Insertion and removal of snips in that pasteboard doesn't update the
graph structure in general. Its done separately, so that you can have a
snip be in the graph, but (probably temporarily) not visible.

If you do want to remove a snip from the graph, you probably want to
use remove-parent and remove-child, instead of the above.
