Public bug reported: I already asked question #665667 in March about this, and it was concluded this was a bug I should report. That pressing Shift while pressing Alt-Tab does not reverse the direction is still an issue. Using Shift as a modifier used to work in previous Ubuntu versions, and also still works when using Super+Tab.
