You can use the Gnome force quit button to get rid of the flash window. Install the gnome force quit button on your panel or sliding panel. When you have an application that refuses to close then click on the force quit button and then click on the window which won't quit. Force quit will force the application to quit.

I am afraid that it does not kill the flash applets
