don't know why exactly this is so, it is the same here: when in
fullscreen, [gemkeyboard] seems to not work..   i usually use both
[gemkeyboard] and [key] to destroy the gemwin.. 

at least on my keyboard this works for destroying in any situation by
typing [esc]:

[gemkeyboard]  [key]

[sel 9]        [sel 27]

hope that helps and you don't need to kill gem from shell anymore. ;-)
