Okay, running hg tip.

What I observe now is that the cycling with the tab key works fine both
with mod and shift-mod. The client order is left untouched except that
the last created client always appears on top when you switch back and
forth between tags. So if I create in floating mode, say, four clients
and order them in some way and then switch to a different tag and go
back, the last created client always appears on top but the z-order of
the other three is left unchanged.

Is this the behaviour you see as well?

This is almost okay, especially when you have more than two clients.
However, with only two clients that overlap (say the editor and plot
window I mentioned before) this can be annoying.

However, I am not going to insist on fixing this.
