Bug Description

The special + w key in 12.04 exposes windows on the current desktop, which is different to previous releases where it exposed windows on all desktops, which I thought was more useful. Not only this but it is duplicating the functionality alreay existing by using the Alt + Shift + Up cursor key binding. I personally would like to see the binding changed back but if Special + W is to stay as the current desktop then the old method should be rbought back with a different binding (Special + e or something) and the Alt + Shift + up method removed.
