They're two different things.  Activating cover-switch on the all-effects 
tab simply makes it available for the system to use -- there's keyboard 
shortcut triggers in the config for most effects.  But it doesn't tell the 
system to use that effect for the default alt-tab app-switch.  The setting 
on the general tab tells it which of several effects to use for app-switch.

The same thing applies to desktop switching.  The cube can be enabled, and 
triggerable by (the default assignment) Ctrl-F11, but not enabled as the 
default for desktop switching.
