Bug Description

I wanted to close a couple of channels and thought that if I highlighted more than one then a right-click option might be available to close them simultaneously.

Unfortunately the lowest channel in the tree was immediately closed upon highlighting two channels. The other channel remained open.

As in the upstream bug report this was a feature not a bug.

I agreed it was a strange feature though and have removed it for the next release.
