(3) What you expected to happen
I expected that Dash will not disappear when I type in a single character. I also want to be able to set a keyboard shortcut independent of this behavior.

(4) What happened instead
The prompt area of Unity Dash disappears when I type "w" in the search bar.

Example: A single 'w' (lowercase), or a sequence like "test w" closes the area. However it doesn't happen for "W" (uppercase).

This bug is related to a keyboard shortcut. "Close window" shortcut is set to "Super+w" in my environment, and when I change it to e.g. "Super+q", Dash starts to disappear when I type "q" instead of "w" (and it won't disappear with "w" any longer).

(Just to confirm, when I type in "w", I'm not explicitly pressing "Super")
