(ok, that's a really old thread, but never the less)

Window switching or cycling is keyboard localization dependent on OS X.

if you have a US eng keyboard it is
Command-`: Activate the next open window in the frontmost application
Shift-Command-`: Activate the previous open window in the frontmost application

however if you have a german keyboard you are right:

in vanilla Pd windows cycling doesn't work at all.
in Pd-extended it is hardcoded to the US-eng behaviour, even if you have a different keyboard.
the key ` is the rightmost key in the top row if you have a german keyboard. that's a really uncomfortable shortcut.
