works OK on my 700 mhz machine... needs more investigation.

This behavior seems unique to Sawfish 2.0. I don't see this with metacity. It is
still a little sluggish all the time when going up the list, but I think this
has to do with loading graphics more than the bug I am trying to talk about here.
