xfwm4: alt+tab holds the system and probably leaks memory

xfwm4 grabs the server while cycling. If xmms rely on the X server to
play a sound, then it's rather a bug in xmms (or at least a design
oddity in xmms)

As for a mem leak, I'll check. Last time I checked, valgrind didn't
report any mem leak.
