  * resolution:  => worksforme


 if its certain apps that aren't closing it is almost certainly that app
 that has the problem. the remeove button either kills the x client - which
 is rare - or sends a "WM_DELETE" message to the APP - the APP then has to
 respond by closing its own window. if it doesn't respond - nothing to be
 done. this is the same mechanism used in E for all windows, on the
 desktop, which has worked perfectly for years... so i'm finding it very
 hard to believe this is a problem with E (especially since it also works
 in ASU with the qt apps and EFL apps that are there by default as well as
 other test apps).

 i have never seen this not work (unless the APP doesnt want to exit - eg
 it's hung). i can really only mark this as "worksforme" because it does
 work for me... and has always done so... so unless i can reproduce it...
