Workspace overview sticks on cross-workspace drag'n'drop

Bug Description

In 12.04.

The small compiz window showing all four workspaces which occur when one switches between them using keyboard shortcuts sticks, i.e. does not go away, unless I change workspace again.

The window is not dead: if I open a program on any workspace, it shows up in the small 2x2 grid.

This occurs if I mark a file, hold the mouse button and drag it to another workspace, changing workspaces using shortcut keys.

Reproduce by:
Take any file on the desktop and "lift it" (move it a little, but do not release mouse button), and the change workspace using shortcut keys, then release mouse key.
