Bug Description

I can reliably reproduce this bug.

I have a dual monitor setup that use "separate X screens".

If I use keyboard shortcuts to "Switch to Next/Previous Workspace" (I've set them to CTRL+ALT+Left/Right), then I get unexpected behaviour:

1) If I press shortcuts quickly and release, as to switch a single workspace, workspaces on both monitors get switched, and after a few switches nothing happens (nothing switches until I click with a mouse somewhere)

2) If I press and hold the shortcuts, as to switch through several workspaces, it gets through 2-5 workspaces, but then stops and further keypresses do not switch anything, until I click somewhere with a mouse.

Extra note: originally I installed this as Ubuntu (with Unity) and then installed kde-full package to have KDE and this bug happens when I boot with KDE.
