Tapping <Super><left> leaves launcher and “keyboard shortcuts” open

Bug Description

When tapping any of the <Super>{<left>,<right>,<up>} window management shortcuts (which, incidentally, are awesome, and I'm very glad I found them), it seems that Unity doesn't notice that the <Super> key has been released - it continues behaving as if the <Super> key was pressed. So, it has the launcher visible, with the 1, 2, 3, etc overlays for the launcher tiles visible, and has the ‘keyboard shortcuts’ overlay visible.

Actually pressing 1, 2, 3, etc doesn't activate the corresponding launcher tile.
