First, someone smarter than I will want to know which version? One of the 
help menu's should tell you.

That sounds as if you have both text and icons selected. I'm running 
R14.0.4 and do not now see that, but its possible I have turned that

That was never where the close window button has ever been located on my 
install, on 2 machines here.  The single click to close the window and 
any child processes in that window is the x in a small box in the upper 
right corner of the windows border.  I believe its location might be 
configurable, and as its not a problem here, I haven't looked to see if 
it could be moved. Or made dbl-click.  Personal prefs at work.

Possibly not much help, but its a weekend afternoon here, and while I 
have work to do, it is raining just enough to make working outside a 
chore.  So here I am. :)
