you can kill the app with the kill command... find the pid ( process id number ) using ps -aux or top, kill using this command with no quesitons asked: kill -9 pid

Or just as an alternative, you can click on the menu and 'run command' and type xkill. This will give you a little skull n' crossbones to click on the app with and will kill it. tricky's way is more dependable though...
