If you have a Window List applet (there is one by default), it should
certainly list your windows including minimized. Works for 99.9% of
people, I'm fairly sure, or we would have heard about it.

It only works if the window manager supports it, though. But the
default (metacity) should support it.

Should work by default with metacity. Again, there are no other
reports that it doesn't.

The shortcuts would not be listed if you were running a non-metacity
WM. Otherwise there should be lots.
