I don't think the windows are minimized. The issue is that the window is
closed, but he session in Xpra is still live without any windows.
Steps to reproduce...
Start a session with xemacs appliction.
Attach the same from windows machine
Close the xemacs window by clicking on 'X' button.
You still see the command shell running and the session is listed on Linux
machine. This leaves the session unused/orphan. You need to stop the session
explicitly to cleanup.

Since the window is closed, there is no way you can bring it back. 

It would good (for end users) if we can dettach the session on closing the
window. If we provide a prompt (Do you want to close OR dettach?), that
would be ideal.
