Thanks Paul.

>From your output I see you clicked on the Apply button in Synaptic, a
bunch of events from DEAD accessible objects resulted, that Orca kept
processing events, presented the window you Alt+Tabbed into, etc.

Having said that, if memory serves me, even before the changes I made,
Orca kept processing events, and probably would have presented the
window you Alt+Tabbed into. In other words, I don't know if, from the
user's perspective, anything has changed. But it appears that I've done
all I can do in Orca (i.e. handling the exceptions it's getting from
AT-SPI2 as a result of querying Synaptic for information via AT-SPI2).
