[Bug 917090] [NEW] Cannot return directly to top-left workspace from bottom-right workspace using Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys shortcut


Public bug reported:

Steps to reproduce:
1) Use the Ctrl+Alt+arrow key combination to activate Compiz's Desktop Wall workspace switcher. This can be done from any workspace.
2) While holding down Ctrl+Alt, navigate to the bottom-right workspace, if not already there.
3) Now press Ctrl+Alt+Up arrow key+Left arrow key.

What should happen:
You move diagonally up and to the left back to the top-left workspace, visiting no other workspaces in between.

What happens instead:
Usually you will stay put on the bottom-right workspace, as though you didn't press any arrow keys. Occasionally, you might be moved to the top-right or bottom-left workspace instead.

Note that all other movement between workspaces using the Ctrl+Alt+arrow
key(s) combination, including diagonal movement, still works as normal.

Workarounds include:
1) Use the Unity launcher's Workspace Switcher (or Super+S) instead to return to the top-left workspace.
2) Use the Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys to first navigate to either the top-right or bottom-left workspace, then move back to the top-left workspace horizontally/vertically.

(Note: I discovered this problem while checking what the status of bug
753176 was in Precise.)
