Thanks, that's good to hear.

That's the default "Close window" shortcut, right?  Unfortunately, I've
disabled all shortcut using only the Alt modifier, because that's
reserved for emacs here.  Now, I've set it to Mod4+Alt+Backspace, which
seems to do the trick.  Basically, I'd like to have it Mod4+Backspace,
but somehow most shortcuts only work if Alt is included in them, too.
