Difficult to track down without a reproducible example.

The program may not cheat but sometimes it acts like a poor sport as I notice this more often when I have a stronger position. I check the hint, whether a doubling cube or a dice roll hint, then click the hint's close button. Sometimes the hint window remains on the screen even though I hear my computer's audio sound for a closing window. If I click the close button again the whole game shuts down, like it's kicking over the game board. I have worked around this by moving the hint window off the board and carrying on as on the next hint request it would open a new hint window. But this last time it reactivated the first hint window and the game shut down when I closed it.
