Also, see this SO question and this xprop bug report. According to those, it's not possible to set more than one action using xprop. That matches with what I was seeing under Compiz. That fact that metacity prevented the window from closing might have been because the effect of running the xprop command was to remove all allowed actions from the window. There is a patch in the SO question, so that is worth trying.

@Rho I made a correction to the xprop command (fixed the format from 8s to 32a), see if it works for you now. Also, I'm 100% sure the xprop command was working (with 8s even), but it isn't working for me now under Compiz. I believe when it was working for me I was using metacity (actually Mate's version of metacity). Even under Compiz though, changing _NET_WM_ALLOWED_ACTIONS causes the Taskbar > right click on window to have all of its options grayed out (Minimize, Maximize, Close, etc.), so it's having some effect.
