I don't think so.

I was talking about the process of closing window, not about the shutdown.

Mike is talking about the shutdown process (what you do before switch your computer off).

When I close "dirty" file windows (not python shell windows), then I asked for confirmation to continue. This question come from the program.
If I kill this program with kill, xkill, or by means of WM, then I asked for confirmation, and this question come from my WM (if WM is polite).
I did not verified what would happen if I shutdown my X server (and WM with it), nor if I shutdown my computer.
