Vidalia 0.3.0-alpha doesn't exit when you close the window on Windows

On OS X this is expected behavior, but I don't think it is on Windows. And if it is, there is no menu entry that let's you "exit" Vidalia. It should either exit when the X is clicked, or give an obvious menu entry that lets you exit that way.

With obvious menu entry you mean in the main menu bar?
The main problem for me is that the tray icon is hidden by Windows.

The other issue is that a regular user wouldn't want to close Vidalia by just clicking in the X button, she would want it to be a bit more complicated than that, since one mistaken click and your browser and may be IM closes all together.
I'm not sure if this is such a good idea.

I think there should at least be a drop down menu entry that says "Exit" and does exactly that. Having to right or left click on the tray icon, which doesn't always display, seems counterintuitive to me, at least for how I use computers. Maybe some regular Windows users can chime in?

You mean having it in the "Tor" menu? That can work.

Another more widely used possibility would be to add an option in the settings, a checkbox: "Close to tray", with default checked.

The fix for this is in my branch chiiph/bug3146_exit and has been merged to alpha. It'll go out with 0.3.1-alpha.
