Bug Description

In CCSM -> static switcher -> Appearance -> Selected Window Highlight -> Highlight Mode
the value should be forced to: "None"

Or else, you may see the launcher staying on top while cycling through app. windows with alt-tab.

Please. No. This fix/workaround to the four-year broken Alt-Tab handling in Compiz was only uploaded 3 days ago. See bug #175874.

Paul, "Bring to front" is the current default selection, David meant "None"

Sorry, I mixed this up with the Setting:

  CCSM → Static Switcher → Appearance → Focus on Switch

On the machine I have, "Bring Selected to Front" is already the default.

No idea, I've just seen the diff arrive in my inbox and come to correct it back to "Bring Selected to Front". I'm utterly puzzled, since I don't remember changing it!
