I'd have to say "class category," because in the 5-pane
browser (launched with Open->Class Browser and displaying
"System Browser" in its title-bar), when I create a new one,
I am presented in the lower pane with a dummy class

OK, I found what you're talking about, but for me, on a
1-button Mac trackpad (I don't have my 3-button mouse with
me here), the combo is alt-click, which is inoperative in
most programs.  The right-click options are usually called
up with ctrl-click.  And yes, this is a side issue.

When I right-click (ctrl-click) anywhere in the Browser, I
get a menu offering a "delete" option, which makes the
Browser disappear.

Rename or remove.  Alt-click.  Thanks.
