It appears I am out of luck. I don't have the exact hierarchy as you
describe, but I did find some Window and Desktop Switching Effects
controls under "Desktop Effects". However, there is a note on that page
stating that "Compositing is not supported on your system." Thus, all
of the settings are grayed out.
In any case, thanks very much for the reply.
