I adhere to both requets, with a twist on the second one.

Please try opening three or four tabs and then change their order by
dragging one: the control-tabbing sequence will still perform as if you did
not change the order. This is a bug.

Additionally, if the focus is in the tools bar, control+tab flops. It loops
the widgets of a single sub-panel.
Similar things happen with control+page down/up. Control+pgDown jumps tabs
but also resets the position of the classes list and the list od style

It might be that the proper operation is that Amaya handled the tools bar as
another tab. Then, with focus in the tools bar it should traverse the *visible
*widgets with tab strokes. Sometimes the focus sinks nowhere and it
impossible to recover it by tabbing.
