Comment(by sascha_silbe):

 Replying to [comment:2 fran]:
 > The current behavior is basically equivalent to what GNOME does; in
 GNOME, if you have a single window open, it still brings up the usual Alt-
 Tab dialog. (And it's not always a no-op, since that window might be
 minimized; in the case of Sugar, they might be in the
 Activity/Group/Neighborhood view) I'd be inclined to say this is the
 proper behavior; a user pressing Alt-Tab may have forgotten they have only
 the Journal open, and it's useful for the frame with its list of
 activities to appear and remind them of this.

 Having Alt-Tab do nothing just makes it appear broken.
