alt-tab is handled by the window manager. so if it's broken, either your
modifier keys got messed up somehow or the WM is broken. my bet is on the
former though.

a bit more information as to what server you're running, your keyboard
configuration, when exactly it stopped working, etc. would be helpful
though. My crystal sphere is out for repairs atm.
