That's the task of the window and not the file manager, in GNOME that's
normally metacity. Try Alt+Shift+Tab. You can change the keybindings in
the GConf editor (/apps/metacity/global_keybindings_switch_windows) or
in the control center of GNOME 2.6.

BTW: Debian unstable has been mostly upgraded to GNOME 2.6.
