I have checked xfwm4-4.11.3 and all the problems I mentioned earlier 
have gone away. The preview size is big enough for me (previously it was 
less than half of that), there are no noticeable delays after Alt-Tab, 
and previews had been disabled in the list mode (fine with me but I like 
the screenshot Liviu has posted).
