Hmmmh, no idea why.

Well, the integer is the "index (integer) : The index of the window,
ordered front to back." (from the dictionary of TeXshop).
Sorry, I didn't checked. As after a normal teXing the console window
is normally the second window, it should be 2, not 3. It's better to
use instead the name of the window title. On the command line it IS
working using the window title or the right index number/integer.
osascript /path/to/close.scpt `basename`
in the engine
on run argv
tell application "TeXShop" to close window (item 1 of argv as string
& " window")
(See the example in the Man page of osascript)
But there's another possiblity:
You want to print, and the typeset is done without any error, so why
not check TeXShop>Preferences>Typesetting>Show Console>when error occurs
Then the console window never shows up.
