Currently switching applications with alt+tab is inconsistent, frustrating and broken. Thanks to the fix the initial correct behavior is restored, making the overall unity a bit better.
1. Start 2 same-applications (e.g. Terminals)
2. Focus one of it
3. Press alt+tab slow enough so that the Alt+Tab switcher appears
-> Make sure that the focus goes to the next, non-focused terminal window
Broken switcher behavior, wrong order of switched applications.
Open two windows of the same application.
Switching between them with fast alt-tab where the switcher doesn't appear works. However if you alt-tab slowly you always end up back on the first window.
Expected behaviour is that fast alt-tab and slow alt-tab should do the same thing, namely switch between the two most recently used windows, even if they're of the same application.
