Same problem here - but the most frustrating thing is that I can't
disable this three finger tapping switcher function

  Window switcher freezes with 3 finger tap and hold

Status in compiz package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Sometimes the window switcher will pop up and then become unresponsive
  for a few seconds. I believe this happens with a three finger tap and
  hold (because it happens when I am using two finger scrolling and a
  third finger could easily brush the touchpad), but I have ever been
  able to replicate the bug on purpose. I am using a Synaptic pad with

  The expected behavior is that dragging to the left or right with three
  fingers after the switcher appears will move the highlighted window
  choosing cursor (the best description I can think of) to the left or
  right and then releasing the touch will immediately switch to the
  selected window. Instead I must wait for the switcher to time out,
  because the highlighted window choosing cursor will not move.

  I can make the switcher go away with a right click outside the
  switcher box.

  Also affects Ubuntu 14.04.2.
