#90 "Exit when window closed" ignored

Post v1.0
GUI (73)
Gene Cash

Select the Edit->Preferences->Configure this window... menu option.
In the "General Options" dialog that appears, there's a checkbox "Exit program when this window is closed"
Even if you check this box, when you close the file/icon window, it unfloats it instead of exiting.

    It should be probably changed to
    "Exit program when this image window is closed"

    It is meant for handling multiple windows opened via "New window"

    This change will occur after 1.0 release due to string freeze.

    Shouldn't be the default to not exit the program when a window is closed, instead exit the program when the last window is closed? Like all other programs do?
