The obvious solution would be to make the close button touch the top and left borders of the screen. This way, you can just throw your mouse up-left and click without aiming, as per Fitt's law.

A bug was reported ~9 months ago or so, but apparently there were bigger fish to fry first - so the close button is offset by (x,y) = (2,1) pixels making it very hard to click.

If someone is going poking about in that area it would be kind of nice to remove the phantom close button on the other monitors for focussed maximised applications. Bug links for reference:
