	Unless I'm not understaning this question/comment correctly.... As
it is now, if you click on the "X" (Close) button and hols th mouse, then
that skull and crossbones appears.  When you move the mouse off the window
(and onto desktop) no window will be closed/killed.  Likewise if you move
the mouse off that window and onto another window, it will then close/kill
that window.  So, either I'm misunderstanding your problem, or you were
unawars of this, or your desktop is too crowded.

	the Update look & Update feel menu items were removed, as they did
not do what you expected.  If you simply edit your look/feel and then
select it from the menu, it will then become activated with the most
recent changes.  There is no need to slecect another look/feel then the
one you just edited.
