Maybe the origin of the problem is that if you quit
gnubg within an ongoing match/session, it raises a popup asking for
If I run gnubg and as soon as it appears I minimiwe
its window and then right-cilck on the takbar icon and "Close",
it disappears immediately. But if I run gnubg, start a match, minimize the windows,
and then right-cilck on the takbar icon and "Close",
then it doesn't disappear. I get the context menu, and the "Restore"
thing works, but the gnubg window is then frozen, with no way to quit (except
task manager terminate).
[BTW, I have sound switched off and no 3d-board closing,
but the sound thing could be the origin of the command-line case
reported on rgb]

I think it should be modal.

Just like the hint window, I think the rollout one
should be modal : is there anything you should be able to do in the main window
while a rollout is ongoing ? And while a hint is ongoing ? Don't think so, maybe just quitting and stopping,
but rollouts can be stopped with their own stop button, hints should have their
own stop button too (in case somebody fances a 4ply hint or runs a 3ply
on a 386).
