[Bug 175874] Re: shift switcher should keep track of order like application switcher


I was reading the various parts of the switcher code on the train today,
and doing some testing with:

  for i in $(seq 12) ; do pango-view --font 'Ubuntu 200' --text $i &

it appears that the very act of Alt-Tabbing is changing the stack
ordering, by causing each window to be momentarily raised.  A simple
test that reflect this is to Alt-Tab-Tab-Tab-Tab-Tab and then Shift-Tab
an equal number of times back to the original window.  This should cause
no change to the stack ordering, but what is actually happening is that
all of the windows that have been "touched" will now be moved to the top
of the Alt-Tab list, in the reverse order.

  Compiz switcher Alt-Tab order is not predictable - should maintain
  LIFO ordering in application switcher
