Control-tab for switching between windows

With Windows and Mathematica 8, following the advice from


http://superuser.com/questions/169097/how-do-you-cycle-through-windows-in-mathematica-7

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4209405/customizing-mathematica-shortcuts

I added

  Item[KeyEvent["Tab", Modifiers -> {Control}],
FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["CycleNotebooksForward"]]]

to KeyEventTranslations.tr to allow switching between Mathematica windows
with Control-Tab. This is fantastic! However, if the help window is present
the switching gets "stuck" on the help window. Other windows like the
function navigator switches fine though.

Control-F6 switches fine between notebooks and the help window, but is
really awkward to reach.

Anyone have a suggestion for making Control-Tab be a bit more like
Control-F6 without installing another program? I tried various other
promissing sounding front end tokens without success.

Thank you
