Indeed, that is what it is trying to do.  I'm not convinced it always

The windows really need to be tested in strict top-first order for it to
work correctly.  I don't like the sound of that "likely"...

Sadly that comment is taken directly from the source for
FindWindowAtPoint which will suffer from the same problem. I
agree that unless the list is strictly ordered by z-order it
should be doing a string top-down z-order search.

I'm not sure how to do that off the top of my head - I
presume by getting GTK to enumerate window order or

Anyway, it will be no more broken than it was!
