Description David Kaplan 2002-09-02 17:40:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020710

Description of problem:
I recently rebooted my machine after a kernel update and now I am unable to
cycle between windows using Alt-Tab like I used to be able to.  It has been a
while since a reboot, so it could be unrelated to the kernel update, but that
was the last thing that I did.

New accounts do not seem to have the same problem, but copying all the files
from a new account into my home directory did not fix the problem.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.log into one of my older accounts
2.type alt-tab

Actual Results:  the title bar of the active window flashes as if it was going
to change, but nothing actually happens - the active and raised window does not

Expected Results:  the next window should come to the top and become active.

Good chance you're getting sawfish errors in ~/.xsession-errors.
Those might be helpful.
