- Subject: ALT-ESC isn't implemented correctly in Cygwin X
I have two X apps running, such as an xterm window and emacs-X11.
One of them has the focus and is immediately in front of the other.
I press ALT-ESC to put the one in front behind all other windows.
The title-bar becomes highlighted on the app which now has the focus
as it should.
But I can still see text from the previous app SHOWING THROUGH the
window with the focus. (This doesn't happen with non-X apps such as
CTRL-L has no effect. The only way to fix it is to bring the original
window back to the front and dismiss it with some means other than
ALT-ESC, or to bring a non-X app in front of the problem area and then
(Note that I used to use ALT-space N to minimize apps on both Windows
and Linux, but Microsoft broke it so that often-used apps don't go to
the end of the ALT-TAB queue any more. That's EXTREMELY annoying, so
I trained myself to use ALT-ESC instead. And I notice that Cygwin X
captures ALT-space anyway.)
