So, you're saying that if I go down to my Firefox icon and scroll either up or down it will switch to different windows?

scrool on one icon!

Thanks for the patch.
I added it to the awn-testing branch to test it before include it in trunk.

I've tried this w/ awn-testing and it seems to work as described fine. Very neat... One suggestion though, I don't find this very useful unless it also works with active launchers as well. Scrolling with the mouse wheel currently has no effect on the first window opened by a program which has a launcher on the dock since its icon doesn't need to appear in the task-manager.
