Dash shows if you press ANY "super" combo quickly

Bug Description

The default for the new switcher is alt-tab, but I wanted to reassign it to super. When I did so, I found the following issue:
Any time you press a "super" combo quickly, the other combo will fire but the dash will still show.

Bind "start switcher" to super+tab... super-tab quickly, flips window AND opens dash.
"Initiate Scale" already bound to super+w... press super+w, super+w (releasing "super" each time), and you'll get the dash when you return from scale.

The dash should be inhibited if any other super key combo has fired.

Unity version: 4.22.0-0ubuntu3
Compiz version: 1:0.8.6-0ubuntu9

This is not a duplicate.
Unity isn't blocking... unity... from receiving keypresses; in fact, it's quite the opposite: one plugin SHOULD be blocking the other from firing once it's claimed the input event.
