On one of my virtual desktops, I have 4 identically-sized Xterm windows. When I cycle through the windows with Alt-Tab, the first window gets outlined, but when I press Tab again, the next window does not get outlined. If I open a window that is a different size, then it gets outlined as I cycle through.

I looked through the source code and found the following suspicious block of code in src/wireframe.c:

    if ((width == wireframe->width) && (height == wireframe->height))
        /* Moving only */

I removed this block, and that fixed the bug for me.
