Display::close() does not actually close window

The following plugin is ineffective. The event tracking somehow does not recognize that the window should be closed.

There is a temp workaround that I employed in the one place I needed it (in Harmonizer). It uses display.getPanel() so when Curtis makes his planned display code changes it will be discovered and remedied.

@Plugin(menuPath = "Plugins>Debug>Close Active Display")
public class CloseActiveDisplay implements ImageJPlugin {

private ImageDisplayService service;

public void run() {
