thanks for your answer, I  cite from the help menu:

"Note   that Focus under mouse  and  Focus strictly under mouse prevent
certain features, such  as  the  Alt+Tab  walk-through-windows dialog,
from working properly." 

So may be this entry simply is outdated.

My point is, if I chose either  Focus  under mouse or Focus strictly
that indeed ALT+TAB walks trough-windows however the auxiliary  window,
which shows all the windows, does not pop up, as it does with click on

It seems that  you tell me, this is unavoidable, do I understand that
