Description

On WIN32 it is common to use Alt+Tab when developing to
quickly move between Doomsday, Photoshop, VS, Textpad,
etc.

Atm Doomsday is not "aware" of Alt+Tab and consequently
triggers the automap. It would be nice if Doomsday
could be made to ignore this so that you can quickly
switch programs in WIN32 without this side effect.

Related to this is some strange behaviour by the
console if its open when Alt+Tab'ing between apps. What
I think is happening is that the con-completion thinks
an input event has occured as it starts cycling through
all the console commands. You have to either lower the
console or press tab again and clear the current line.

This problem exists on Linux. I can Alt-Tab until the sun
consumes the Earth 5 billion years down the line, and the
windowmanager will never get the alt-tab.
