I actually noticed this as well. It would be nice in terms of consistancy, and can't be hard to implement. If the user expects it (like I did) then it should work.

Thanks for your bug. None of the GNOME application acts this way, closing the request, we want consistency and closing with middle click doesn't seem to be a good idea since some application already use to act on the clipboard content

I would like that feature in gedit - because this bothers me a lot.

Closing a tab with the middle click works in thunderbird and firefox.

Please support this in gedit.
