    The Ctrl/W chord is classically a window refresh chord on OpenVMS
    applications.

    Cmd/W and Ctrl/W chord are typically window-level operations on other
    platforms; Cmd/W closes the window on Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows,
    among other platforms.

    Command/ chords are different from Control/ chords are different from
    Option/ chords are different from Function/ chords are different from
    Shift/ chords. And then there's the super-shift/ chord, but that's
    generally not assigned a key.

    The various platforms are typically just similar enough in the choice of
    modifiers and chords to confuse cross-platform finger-memory operations.
    In simplest terms, no matter what chord you pick, you're always wrong.

    Changing the line:

    case XK_Escape:

    to:

    case XK_w:
    if (!(event->xkey.state & ControlMask))
    break;
    case XK_Escape:

    in GUI.C will do what you want.
