Opening a new window, rather than a new instance, is by design. Starting a new instance would cause issues, such as auto save and session files clobbering each other.
Alt+F4 only closes the current window, and won't terminate all instances.
I'll have a think about what can be done about the minimap. It's currently a per-window setting, but it may make more sense for it to be a global one.
