I can't use Ctrl+Alt+Up on my computer because of the hardware. So I changed the shortcut for switching workspaces to Super+Arrow. But now the little overview window that shows up to show wich workspace I switched to does not dissapear. Any idea?

edit: At the moment I can just close it with Esc.

When changing the dash shortcut to Super+Alt everything works as expected, but thats not how it should be. – pirad Jun 15 '12 at 16:17
I have the exact problem - I'd like to switch workspaces with Super+Arrow and having this window sticking around. Very annoying! – csauve Oct 12 '12 at 5:06
I think I changed the shortcut for the dash too. I changed it to Super+Alt and everything works. Though it should work with Super alone too. – pirad Oct 13 '12 at 7:40
