So now I have a Document object in the interpreter for a buffer that is gone, and another buffer that is still open in Emacs has no Document object in the interpreter.

Have you had a look at other kill-buffer-hook functions?

It could be that delete-window-if-one-buffer-one-frame or have some unintended side-effect of killing the buffer and/or selecting another one prematurely.
If you can identify the problem, then I could look into why that is happening.

I think your code is fine.
