Perhaps try adding an event handler to the dialog's Delete event.  This
is the event that is raised when the user clicks the X in the window's
title bar.  Do a Console.WriteLine() or something to see when it happens.

If this method is called the first time you click, you can make the
window hide on the first click by calling Hide() in the event handler.
(If you are displaying the dialog with Run() you will probably want to
instead call Respond() with the appropriate ResponseType.  Then Hide()
or Destroy() the dialog from the code that calls Run().)

If, on the other hand, you don't get any message on the console when you
click the X for the first time, then it sounds like your window manager
might not be passing the event on to your application.  In that case
there is pretty much nothing you can do about it.
