Bug Description

Hotkeys which use the <Super> key (e.g. for gnome-do (<Super><Space>) or the session menu in the indicator applet (<Super>S)) do not work in unity. However, in the Ubuntu Classic Edition they work as expected.

Steps to reproduce this issue:
1. Press <Super>-S
2. launcher opens, but not the session menu in the indicator applet

It somehow seems that all <Super> hotkeys are handled by unity/compiz. However when I change the <Super> key in the CompoizConfig for the launcher to e.g. <Ctrl> I still cannot open the session menu with <Super>-M.

I hope this will be not rescheduled again and fixed before natty release, as unity + gnome-do together are very sexy, but not working as expected until this is fixed

I have many shortcuts (all my shortcuts in terminal) that use Super. Until this is fixed, there is no way I can use Unity.

I'd also like to see this fixed. Even a workaround would be sufficient.

It's difficult enough to find usable shortcuts but without Mod4 it's almost impossible!

I still can't assign Mod4 + something for other screenshots: In general i want to have Mod4 + S for Shell and Mod4 + X for eXecute dialog. Entered it in the keyboard program, doesnt work. :(
It worked in Natty!
