There is no difference between alt-tab and alt-d behaviour. I tested this numerous times on 14.04. The only tricky part is that you have to make sure to press and hold the alt first. So don't press d first. You can see that every time you open the HUD, you have typed a d somewhere. alt - tab works in the exact same way...
Make a script nohudrun like the primusrun is done: #!/bin/sh old_key="$(LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib dconf read /org/compiz/integrated/show-hud)" LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib dconf write /org/compiz/integrated/show-hud "['']" "$@" LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib dconf write /org/compiz/integrated/show-hud "$old_key" And invoke it like that: nohudrun primusrun ...
In the system settings, just change the keyboard shortcut for "Key to show the HUD" (under 'Launchers'). As a suggestion, set it to activate when both the alt keys are pressed at the same time, instead of just one. It makes using VMs much less annoying.
