Bug Description

The problem only appears when using any assortment of keys for the summon accelerator that includes the Shift key. If I do use the Shift key, Do will open normally when the shortcut is pressed, but will not close if I press the shortcut again. Then the only way to close Do is to press Escape or click away. If I use a shortcut for the summon accelerator that does not use the Shift key it works as expected. I am using GNOME Do 0.8.1 from the PPA sources shown on the main website.

I can confirm this behavior still happens in bzr trunk.

I can't reproduce, are you sure you're not holding shift or that your shift key isn't sticking down?

Quite sure the shift key is not sticking and positive I am not holding it down. Perhaps it is related to the specific WM (Compiz 0.8.2)?

Steps (for me) to reproduce:

1) Open preferences
2) Set the summon key to: <Shift><Super>space
3) Close preferences
4) Type <Shift><Super>space, which summons as expected
5) Type <Shift><Super>space again, which does nothing

No matter how many times I re-type the summon shortcut, summon does not go away. This is only happening with shortcuts that include <Shift>. I have tried several combinations. With <Shift><Alt>F, instead of vanishing summon it actually types an 'f' and starts searching.

Ah I misunderstood the report, I know exactly what's causing this and will
fix it when I get home tonight.
