Right...I agree it is kind of weird to have the minimization icon there too. I tried to get rid of it using gdk_window_set_decorations, but I was having trouble making it conditional on whether or not there is a tray icon. The function I stole from the new gtkstatusicon.c (that we use to make the delete_event handling conditional) only seems to work after some arbitrary point that I can't figure out. I'm going to nag Matthias tomorrow I think about this :) Now as for the X button...the idea is Rhythmbox isn't an application anymore. It's an applet with a big transient dialog that appears when you click on it. I'm not sure in any case we can dogmatically say "the X button must quit" as it's not true in many cases; e.g. with multiple browser windows, closing one doesn't exit them even though technically they're all one process. I think if we get rid of the minimization button it should feel more intuitive. Maybe get rid of maximize too (this would *definitely* make it look and feel a lot more like a GtkDialog), and have a special "Full screen" option for parties and stuff that would automatically turn on visualization etc. > But apart from that this does make things seem nicer. Ok, committed...hopefully we can work out some details and further refinements like hiding the minimize button. It would be nice to have an un-minimization animation too.
