Ok a bit more on this bizarre issue....

I tried a range of random things, including reinstalling most of the Ubuntu
desktop & compiz related components. Didn't help.

So I grabbed Hatari 2.0 from mercurial and built that. Didn't help - same

I also noticed that a similar issue is easily reproduced by toggling the
sound on/off in the SDL Hatari menu. The window hangs as soon as you return
to the main menu.

That seemed a bit suspicious...

This Ubuntu install is running as a VM under VirtualBox - which definitely
has its moments. So I toggled the sound 'hardware' off, and turned 2D
acceleration on in VirtualBox, and restarted the VM.

Problem went away...

Hm.  SDL handles sound in a separate thread.  But threads go
away at the same time as the main program...

Btw. Main advantage (or disadvantage?) of the Python UI is that its

You can run the Python UI with "hatariui" command.

Will give it a try thanks.

When this occurs (either by using the QUIT button, or hitting the red
window X), the 'hatari' process is terminated and no longer in the

If the process owning the window has gone away, it cannot be
the source of this problem.  The problem is with your desktop,
or X server, and probably happens also with some other SDL programs.

I might try some other programs but trying not to bloat out the VM too
much before I export it.

The window however retains the last image shown (usually the TOS
desktop or SDL UI) and can be dragged around and minimised as if its
alive. It can't however be closed.

Which desktop environment you're using?   Sounds like its
compositor is broken.

Ubuntu 16.10 + unity desktop.
