I have a British 105-key keyboard and the Windows-key works fine (I use 
Win-[1-6] to change desktop). I seem to remember it not working immediately 
after the upgrade to XOrg, until I added the "nodeadkeys" variant I think. You 
can do that using dpkg-reconfigure... or edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf. 

My keyboard section looks like:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Keyboard"
        Driver          "keyboard"
        Option          "CoreKeyboard"
        Option          "XkbRules"      "xorg"
        Option          "XkbModel"      "pc105"
        Option          "XkbLayout"     "gb"
        Option          "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
