Issue Report: close window action in task bar acts as "shut down Steam"
When I right-click Steam in the window buttons bar and select "Close", Steam will try to shut down entirely. This is a mismatch with how Steam's own window close button works.

I'm on Xfce, 32-bit Xubuntu 12.10. Tried with both Compiz and Xfce's own windowing system.

That close item really does means close.
They use the X in the Steam client to mean close‐to‐tray.

Yes, that's what I'm on about. The "close" menu item should make it act like "close to tray", not "shut down Steam". To compare: in other software, when you have multiple windows open and you close one this way it'll close just that window, not the entire application. This is also the default behaviour on Windows for closing the Steam window that way, by the way.
