No, Close closes the window, Exit exits the app. If the preferences idea
I posted earlier is followed, everybody is happy, but putting Gmc quit
options in the Session Manager is a really, really poor idea:

Q: "How do I quit my file manager, Gtop says it's still running?"

A: "The file manager also displays root window icons, so you shouldn't
quit it."

Q: "But I don't have any root window icons."

A: "Ok, go to Foot|System|Session Manager Properties, and open it up,
then close the file manager from there."

Q: "But why doesn't the file manager just quit if I don't have any root
window icons, or if I don't want them?"

A: "Beats me, talk to _______."
