Corona SDK Error: CGImageDestinationFinalize image destination does not have enough images

I am hacking around with Corona SDK. I got the following error when switching scenes to one that already existed. (I was implementing a “Go Back” button.)

Corona Simulator[5653] <Error>: CGImageCreate: invalid image size: 0 x 0.
Corona Simulator[5653] <Error>: CGContextDrawImage: invalid context 0x0
Corona Simulator[5653] <Error>: CGBitmapContextCreateImage: invalid context 0x0
ImageIO: <ERROR>  CGImageDestinationAddImage image parameter is nil
ImageIO: <ERROR>  CGImageDestinationFinalize image destination does not have enough images

The symptom was that a button from a previous scene wasn’t removed from the scene when I called storyboard.gotoScene. The problem was that I wasn’t adding the button to the scene view display object as a child. This particular error was hidden from me because it seems you do not need to call scene.view:insert(button) in order for the button to appear.

I had code that created a button using Corona’s Widget API with code like the following:

  local gameBtn = widget.newButton{
    labelColor = { default={255}, over={128} },
    width=300, height=80,
    onRelease = onRelease -- event listener function
