If you're running on Linux you can close the active X windows from the
command line using one of the following combinations of commands.

bash:

  $ wmctrl -ic `xprop -root | grep '_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW(' | cut -d \# -f 2`

tcsh:

  $ wmctrl -ic `xprop -root | grep '_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW(' | cut -d # -f 2`

It is sometimes useful to get a list of all of the X window IDs:

  $ xprop -root | grep "_NET_CLIENT_LIST(WINDOW)"

The IDs can then be used to get the name of each window:

  $ xprop -id [HEX_ID_GOES_HERE] | grep WM_NAME

There is another program, xdotool, that allows windows to be
repositioned from the command line.  I don't believe it is installed by
default on most Linux systems.  I use xdotool on OS X to work around
bugs in the X server that result in MEDM screens appearing off the
viewable desktop when unlocking the screen.
