  Unity Launcher loses keyboard focus when quickly typing and selecting

Bug description:
  In the current Unity version of Raring, when I open the launcher
  (Super-Key) and quickly type what I'm looking for (e.g. "Libr..." for
  Libre Writer), as soon as I see what I'm looking for start using the
  cursor keys to move there by keyboard, suddenly the keyboard focus is
  lost - no movement, typing whatsoever is possible anymore.

  You can simple NOT use the Launcher solely with the keyboard this way.
  It is distracting and wrong. I don't even know what the focus is lost
  for, meaning where it is after it happens!
