I was trying to kill windows by name or by id as listed by "wmctrl -l".
But neither "wmctrl -c bla" nor "wmctrl -i -c 0x04e0000d" would kill
my xterm with title "bla".

I kill the 'current' xterm by typing


to end the shell running in it.

Can you identify the process running in your window and kill that?

Am I missing something?

Yes, this is sth. scripted. Alert windows opening from background
scripts and being killed automatically by some conditions (like
event has passed)...
