Bug Description

Unity in Precise 12.04 is not differentiating between "super+space (tap)" and "super+space (press)". "Tap" is supposed to open Dash and "press" is supposed to open they keyboard shortcut help window and the number-based launcher. Instead of Dash coming up with "tap" only the keyboard shortcut help window and the number-based launcher come up. It's almost impossible for me to launch Dash with they keyboard shortcut like I used to in 11.10. Unity always interprets the "tap" as a "press."

Also, once the keyboard shortcut help window and the number-based launcher come up, I'm unable to get out of that mode by clicking off of it or anything. The only thing I can do to get out of that mode is to move to a different workspace.
