Good topic.  I've had many of the same frustrations.  I've seen a lot of debates or talks that could have ended faster and more to the point if the atheist would simply say "No, you misunderstand what "atheist" means.  I was also recently frustrated when, in a popular podcast, Dogma Debate, one of the atheist hosts argued that atheism means belief that there are no gods, with her justification that she's never seen any hard copy dictionaries list "lack of belief" among their definitions.
