This was dealt with as a support case, so for anyone else following this issue…

By default, the close button in the new UI (versions 8 and up) is drawn as a single button that is shared by all documents. This button is not tied properly to the ActiveDocument.Close() API. Development is looking into making this consistent for the next release.

In the meantime, enabling a feature that draws a close button (X) on each document tab resolves the issue.

1. Press Alt+Shift+S to open the XMetaL Appearance dialog.
2. Enable the checkbox labeled “Show 'Close' button on the active tab”.
3. Click OK to save settings.

The INI variable for that setting is: app_look_activetab_closebutton = true
