I must confess, I was too fast saying +1 for the proposed change. I'm now -1.
Now that I'm aware where to switch that behavior, I've tried to use it, and the surprising issue is that it does not what I *hoped* it would do: it does not just un-minimize the stack and shows the view in that stack, instead it *literally* shows the view and all tabs in the stack at the "old" position, but it does NOT hide the "minimized stack toolbar" and does NOT show the "minimize" button on the stack. The result looks like a "usual" tab stack, but it disappears immediately if it loses the focus (arrgh!) but it does not allows to minimize it in a "usual" way with the "minimize" button, because the button is just not there. Odd! This is so much surprizing and irritating me that I think now the old behavior, as odd as it was, is better.
Ideally I would just want that by clicking the view icon in a minimized stack the stack would un-minimize. That's all, no fancy popups or pseudo-unmimimized views which appear at most unexpected locations and disappear at most unexpected time.
Again, as said in my other mail, this option (whatever it does) must be better discoverable and belongs into the UI preference page. Current "hack" to show it on right-clicking "minimize" button is a joke and inconsistent with any UI's I'm aware of, where "minimize" button never has any context menu with other meaning/function as "minimize".
