[Bug 506089] [NEW] Compiz Shift Switcher does not work correctly with arrow keys


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I configured Compiz Shift Switcher to use the <Super>Right key
combination to rotate windows to the right and the <Super>Left key
combination to rotate windows to the left.

When using Compiz Shift Switcher with these key combinations, it jumps
two windows when pressing an arrow key, skipping one window, for both

Only the initial key press shows a correct animation. Sometimes, the
second does, too.

If I have four windows open, for example, I won't be able to switch to
two of them because they'll constantly get skipped.

Combinations of either <CTRL> or <ALT> with the arrow keys don't work
correctly, either.
