It is the expected behaviour. The icon is in the system tray. The "X"
button means "close this window". The window is closed. But the
application remains.

Perhaps, like Gaim, it should close in the absense of the system tray
(if it does not already), as this would be sensible behaviour. At
most, since the system tray is clearly the case Orgae was intended
for, a pref for "Show orage in notification area", enabled by default
