[Bug 950160] Re: Unity blocks other programs from binding globally to Super+* (* = any key)
Fn+F1 on Dells actually sends Super+P. However I don't know if some
models send it as a quick Super+P tap or the virtual keys are held for
the duration of Fn+F1. But the point is that "Fn+something" is not a
real key. It maps either directly to some hardware feature or to some
other real combo like Super+P. You may well get a quick tap of Super+P
when Fn+F1 is pressed.
The two features we have for avoiding false taps are:
1. Reliable tap detection in Compiz. This has to be turned off in order to fix this bug :(
2. Key press timing in Unity. If Super is down too long then ignore it.
So #2 is all we have left.
