Oh... I did manage to get it sort of working.

Turns out that if you kill all xfce4-terminal windows (quite a chore for a
heavy user...) and start it anew, tab switching does work.  But only until a
reboot/logout.  If any xfce4-terminal windows are started by a saved session
(XFCE's default is to save), no switching.

Reproduced this in a clean install so it's not a matter of my config.

u-boot problems can be solved with the help of your old SCSI manuals, the
parts that deal with goat termination.  You need a black-handled knife, and
an appropriate set of candles (number and color matters).  Or was it a
silver-handled knife?  Crap, need to look that up.
