Then the PIP window should behave the same as without the patch.

But that needs an additional key press :-)
And I don't have enough keys on my remote control to put the
"switch active window" function on it.

Perhaps I should mention, that by default the behavior of the PIP window 
is not changed. You have to enable it in the configuration dialog.

If both is enabled, the PIP window just follows my habit of using it.
"Open PIP" as a matter of "minimizing the current channel into the PIP"
and "Close PIP" as "maximizing that channel".
