changing default action will only apply for new user since the actions are written in the user's config on first start ... e.g your change will not apply to existing users and their super-W will start doing the wrong thing

As I mentioned quite some time ago over the course of 60 or so fresh 12.04 installs with a patched compiz the fly aways would sometimes happen only *once* per install, maybe others find differently??
