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
