When the plugins "cover switch" and "dim inactive windows" are both enabled, inactive windows will also be dimmed in the cover switch. IMHO all windows should be equally visible then.
Problem is that it is currently not possible for one effect to "deactivate" other effects. So I think this is a duplicate of bug #156484

Bug is slightly different. Bug 156484 is about completely preventing a conflicting from loading while this one is to temporarily disable one when another runs.
For dim windows specifically this can be solved by having it detect if a fullscreen effect is enabled--if one is then fade everything in; when the fullscreen effect ends fade everything back out again.
