Description of problem:
Alt-tab doesn't work. See bug 102668.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open 2 windows
2. Try to alt-tab between them
Actual Results: The window list pops up but doesn't go away when you
If you then press the left alt key, focus will switch appropriately.
Expected Results: The window focus should switch.
Machine is a Dell Inspiron 9100.
Using Radeon (generic) driver with ATI Radeon Mobility 9700.
Have external USB keyboard/mouse. Same behavior with built-in keyboard.
ALT-TAB is window manager level functionality which the X server
is not involved with. If ALT-TAB does not perform the desired
operation, it is most likely either a misconfiguration of the window
manager or a bug in the window manager.
Reassigning to "metacity", which is our default window manager,
however if you are using a different OS supplied window manager,
please reassign the bug to the proper component.
