Hi Aric,
quite the same situation here.

When I kill the R buffer (C-x-k), emacs asks if I really want to.
If I kill the R buffer through the button on the toolbar, emacs kill it 
without asking.
And this is very inconvenient, since you do not always check in which 
window the cursor is.
As indicated by Leo and Chrales, I tried to play with emacs-lock.el, but 
it seems ineffective on the behaviour of that "white X on red field" 
Any idea ?
