First time ive looked at Cuis, very impressive, feels fast.

I did notice a small hiccup.

Using cogwin 2361 or SqueakVM-Win32-3.11.5.
With Cuis 3.1-0850
Im on Windows 7 64bit Operating System in case it matters.

Launch Dual Change Sorter and you cannot click on the 'x' or the '-' button int the title bar both of those buttons when clicked behave exactly the same as the normal title 
bar area they pick up the window for dragging.  NOTE: the '+' and 'inverted triangle' buttons are ok.

Simple Change Sorter does not exhibit this behaviour and so far nothing else has either.
