This is not an xfce bug, its an Xorg bug and has been around for ages, xorg
makes keybinds launch at strike, not at release, if you make it a single
key, like the "super" key, it will be executed before any other key
combination. See https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=865 reported
since 2004
