I redefined C-x C-b to bs-show which is a much better
buffer listing with lots of commands for dealing with
and switching to buffers.  The file bs.el (should be
included with emacs) also includes commands for
cycling the buffer forward and backward, which I bound
to M-n and M-p, they also show a list (in the
minibuffer) of the buffers in the order they will be
cycled through. They ar bs-cycle-next and bs-cycle-previous.
