Remapping alt-tab to win-tab confuses Unity

Bug Description

I have remapped alt+tab to win+tab. Whenever I switch between windows using win+tab, the Dash launcher pops up (most of the time, at least). What should happen is this:

1) tapping win key brings up the Dash
2) pressing win, tapping tab and releasing win should not bring up the Dash

The same also happens if you map ctrl+alt+arrows into win+arrows. Changing desktops brings up the Dash.

Thanks for the bug report Jussi. I believe it's the same root issue as in bug #801073. What do you think?

Changed in unity-2d:
status: New → Incomplete
importance: Undecided → Medium

The description of the problem is almost exactly the same, so probably.

I had the exact same behaviour in KDE ages ago, but they have since fixed it. I filed a bug about it to KDE bugzilla, but can't find it now.
