This sounds like an issue with the hidePalettes global property.  It 
should default to true on OS X, and false on Windows and Linux (it has 
no effect on Linux at all at this time).

If you're finding it defaulting to false on OS X then according to the 
Dictionary that would be a bug, so please file a report against it so it 
can be addressed before v7 goes final:
