I agree with David this seems wrong.  It also if I remember correctly is 
different to the behaviour on Linux.

It is also different to the behaviour of GNOME when you have hotkeys 
programmed to switch between workspaces.  I have <shift>F? where ? is 
the workspace number and I can (and do) keep the shift key pressed and 
flick between workspaces.   I'd expect virtual consoles to work the same
