Yes, ":defpadding LEFT TOP RIGHT BOTTOM". (Sorry, I called it
defborder).  You are ignoring xload, so other windows are put on top
of it.  You use e.g.  ':defpadding 0 0 0 48' to make a space that
other windows don't use.

To kill unmanaged windows, use xkill(1), :clrunmanage or :restart.

:unmanage FOO will unmanage new instances of FOO, but not existing FOO clients.
