I hadn't seen that you were using --vi-keys.  I'd recommend putting all 
the key bindings (from Info node '(info-stnd)infokey format') into 
.infokey and not using the --vi-keys option.

The other thing to try is to specify "key-time=0" in the #var section of 
.infokey.  However, this did not make any difference when I tested it.

"Alt-Tab" would work as long as it is not intercepted by your window manager.
