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.

Yes I'm using --vi-keys and I have all my bindings in .infokey (with #stop in #info section). I did a try and to me it behaves the same with or without --vi-keys.

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.
