[Originally reported by i3-new-ticket]
(Using wmctrl to close a window, e.g. via:

$ wmctrl -i -c <window-id>

silently fails. However, other commands, such as:

$ wmctrl -i -a <window-id>

or

$ wmctrl -i -r <window-id> -T "New name"

work as expected.

They are sending a client message we don't handle. It's called _NET_CLOSE_WINDOW.
