Bug Description

I can't seem to be able to open the Dash to launch an application by pressing the Super key right after boot. As soon as I launch an application (e.g. Chrome) pressing the <Super> key works again.

This happens on my main system (a laptop with both Unity and Gnome-Shell) and my workstation (clean Ubuntu 14.04 install just with Unity and the latest updates installed).
