    Hello, a strange problem is happening to my ical once i upgraded to Lion. I usually keep iCal opened and i can identify all my opened apps by a blue dot under the icon. When i run iCal, when the main window is focused, it runs and works fine. If i click on the red close button (it shouldn't exit until i cmq+q it) and then change the focus to safari or mail.app, i notice that the blue dot under ical disappears and it closes itself. Is that a Lion bug or something else?

    Since it's lion ical, maybe it's ashamed because it looks so ugly. :)

    Well, MacWorld does not mention that, and I do not have Lion, but it could be that it now behaves like a "one window at a time" application. I've never had two iCal windows open at once, and can't seem to open two anyway - just tried. Someone with Lion will confirm if this is universal or just yours.

    I am running on OS X Lion and my blue dot is staying there at all times. Not sure if it's a known bug but I am not getting it with iCal out of focus or in focus, etc.
