Public bug reported:

Affects: file-roller (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Behaviour of Ctrl+W in file-roller is inconsistent with other
applications. Nautilus, Firefox and some other programs close the window

gnome-terminal and others don't "open" and "close" files as file-roller
does. On the other hand, if you use the "Open" command in file-roller to
open a new archive, a new window will be opened. It would then seem
logical to have a 1-1 mapping from files to file-roller windows,
although this would be problematic when file-roller is invoked as a
stand-alone application (rather than by clicking an archive in
