This has started ~6w ago, I took a very quick look, from what i recall:

  • New window gets focus,
  • Internals of switching stuff gets updated,
  • List gets updated
  • New selection event,
  • New client gets focus
  • Race condition ends here

(There might be false information here, as i gave up super quickly)

But i am quite certain that it did not start with a efl change, but a enlightenment (or Xorg) change, as i was seeing it on verious laptops, where a few ran a old efl checkout.

oh this is very simple it seems... there's a double "next client" when showing the winlist... :) it's not efl - it's an e thing.
