Bug Description

Currently the alt-tab will unminimize the last active window which is minimized when selecting the application in the alt-tab. There is the option to unminimize other windows if you activated the detail view and manually unminimized them

With initially minimized windows or windows which start out invisible and must be brought to the user's attention by activating some external thing, we are not able to get the thumbnails of the window without breaking the application (going against http://tronche.com/gui/x/icccm/sec-4.html#s-4.1.4). As such, we should unminimize all initially hidden windows which are inaccessible in the detail view because they don't actually exist yet.
