Close if duplicate.

It's a fairly obvious one. 

Current behavior: When you minimize a window only an the application icon is shown. 

Wished behavior:

either: Wake the window up as if it was focused as long as the preview is shown.

or: make it similar to the task switch behavior where it shows a cached (?) last screenshot of it

Fixed in the Wayland session, BTW.

We don't even have window thumbnails in Wayland yet, how can this be fixed there?
