possible bug with cycle_minimum?

I wanted to enable the behavior shown on this thread:


I tried adding the "cycle_hidden=false" option a newly created 
~/.xfce4/xfwm4rc file, but that didn't work.  Since the patch was for a 
cvs version, thought to look at the code to see if it was committed in 
newer revisions.  I looked at lines ~5931-5938 of xfwm4/src/client.c 
(from xfce_4_0_5 tag) and noticed this:

     if (screen_info->params->cycle_minimum)
         passdata.cycle_range = INCLUDE_HIDDEN;
         passdata.cycle_range = INCLUDE_HIDDEN | INCLUDE_SKIP_TASKBAR | 

So it looks like the functionality is there, to some degree.  However, 
maybe I don't understand the meaning of "cycle_minimum", but should the 
line in the "else" block not contain "INCLUDE_HIDDEN"?  As a test, I 
changed that line and re-compiled/installed.  passdata.cycle_range ends 
up being null in my case (presumably because it's looking for that value 
somewhere else instead of ~/.xfce4/xfwm4rc) so the "else" always runs, 
and it now works as expected.
