Ok, I didn't know about Ctrl-W. It's a bit icky because every
application seem to meen something different by it (close a tab, quit
the app, close this window, minimize to tray), but this is a more
general problem :)

I think so too.  For me, (except for maximize window), the title bar controls
are sort of an override, I only use them when the app is not doing it right
or is in the way.  When RB hangs (or frozen for 5mins, feels about the same
:)), and yes this does still happen when listening to streams days at a row,
that X button is my saviour.
