Cool! Thank you. I'm glad and gleeful.

I thought about it, but I actually really like the X on the menus. I like that they're distinct from system windows, and the X is my favorite of the icons that I just unceremoniously replaced. I think I might miss it on the menus. Besides, the red could overpower the menu itself, which would be bad.

You might be right, though: not sure if making the close icon consistent between the two would hurt or help usability.

I think it would be a good idea, the behavior is a lot nicer. Mea culpa: part of the reason I went with the simpler solution was that it would be less work :-)
