Bug Description

<zyga> can anyone confirm that super-key keyboard shortcut hint overlay stays active if you press this sequence and release the key <super> (hold until overlay shows up) <left> <right> (release everything)
 (other sequences also work, I just want to get this one confirmed)
<mhall119> zyga: yes, it does that to me
<zyga> is there a bug open on that?

Well now there is.
