Generic statements like "unstable" or "unusable" mean nothing, the
cause could be anything, even a faulty HD. Basing any decision on that
would be a rumor-based software development =D not a very good idea.

The only feature which could be removed here is the entire "Close
project" menu item. I don't see any other feature which could be
removed. The dialog cannot be removed alone without removing the menu
item because it is what the menu item does. So what you really want is
a new feature: project-less IDE. This is a volunteer based project, if
noone is interrested in implementing the feature that you want, or
won't implement as fast as you want, you can always send a patch.
