Thanks for the observation, but it's hardly 'expected behaviour'. If I
close a program, I expect it to close, not hide. (In this case, it's
worse. I have no systray running, and it disappears from the taskbar).

I'd suggest a normal close by default, and if the special behaviour is
wanted, a command line option.

At least, as Orage is signalling things to the console all the time, why
not a message stating the new state? Or a message on startup, suggesting
the program shouldn't be run from the console?
