Under the latest nightly builds, the COMMAND-` shortcut that is used to switch between windows of the same application under Mac OS X appears to be broken. This works correctly under Safari.
This report is made from a computer using a french AZERTY keyboard layout.
I couldn't reproduce this issue, even with a French keyboard layout. Switching between windows is a Safari feature, so it is rather unlikely (though not impossible) that a WebKit change could break it.
Do you have any "Safari enhancers" such as Inquisitor or SafariStand installed? Does this problem occur on a newly created user account?
I do get this behaviour with a "fresh" account. As far as I know, my Webkit/Safari installation is rather close to a stock one - nothing other that regular plugins (going into /Library/Internet Plugins) is installed. I will try to pinpoint if the problem is caused by a particular plugin or memory resident software.

Report from the crash caused by pressing enough times the COMMAND-` shortcut
The problem experienced is the same with or without and empty plugin folder.
I made no particular progress in trying to kill the helpers/daemons installed by third party software which should be unrelated to Safari/Webkit.
However, I did find out that mashing enough times the COMMAND-` shortcut, on a complex enough website, eventually causes the webkit nightly to fail with a memory protection error.
1- Browse to www.google.fr
2- Open a new window (2)
3- Browse in this window (2) to www.webkit.org (for some reason, it won't work with www.google.fr)
4- Press the COMMAND-` shortcut (typically around 20 to 30 times), with no effect
5- Close window (2)
The original window on www.google.fr will not get focus, and after a few seconds the program will crash.
I have attached the report, hoping that it might help in pinpointing the issue.
