Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Action: Press Super-W to present all open windows, select an inactive window with mouse to switch.
Expected behaviour: the windows get switched.
Actual behaviour: The windows switch and after the switch the Dash is opened, likely because the Super key is detected twice.

Additional info: This only happens when i press the two keys shortly after each other. When i let a second pass after pressing Super it is only triggered once.
This feels really awkward and breaks my concentration quite frequently.

Sorry, to raise this again, but the bug is not completely fixed. If i use the shortcut fast, and especially if i use it again to close the preview, i still end up with the dash open lots of the time.

Unity version installed is 4.12.0-0ubuntu2 right now.

I can confirm that this behaviour still occurs with Ubuntu 11.10 Unity interface. It happens to me more than 50% of times I use super+w.
