During my test with ATK support I also found this issue, and I want to share some discoveries:

* This only happens the first time that you open the Dash. So if you do:
   * Open the Dash window. => you can't navigate
   * Close the Dash window (ie: clicking with the mouse outside that window)
   * Open the Dash window => you can navigate.
* Anyway this is not a valid workaround (open-close-open again), because it is not only the key navigation the one failing. The first time that you open the Dash window, you can't close it with Esc, you need to close
* In the same way I also noticed that sometimes, usually if it is the first thing you do, when you press Alt+F2 to open the Dash, it doesn't open the usual "Run a command" view of the dash, but the basic categories view of the Dash
