I'll give Robb's workaround a try.

I also thought this was fixed at some point, but the bug is present at the moment. Swiping to Dashboard will spring back to Accordance as long as Accordance is in Desktop 1. If I assign Accordance to open in any other desktops except Desktop 1 it behaves as expected, though.

However, Accordance!, I like my dashboard as a space and my new MBP does not have a dashboard key (did it have one before?), so a fix would really, really be appreciated.
I will go back to closing Accordance, to use Dashboard. (

the other option is to use a util like bettertouchtool to do it. should work really well.
is f4 assigned to anything else?
likewise to you "up top"

I had this problem, too, but with my System Prefs set as in the shot, it doesn't happen anymore.
I have Safari, Mail, Newsfire (great little RSS reader) in Space 1, Accordance only assigned to Space 2, Pages & Numbers assigned to Space 3, etc. As long as I have Accordance assigned to a Space separated from the Dashboard by at least one Space, I don't keep having my Spaces shift when I don't want them to shift.

The keyboard design changed with Lion. Thus, the early 2011 keyboards/MacBooks do not reflect the concept of "Desktop" as Lion presented the user.
What's interesting it that there is a preference for "keyboard shortcuts" but it will not let me change F4 or F3 for that matter.
Thankfully Julie's tip seems like its going to prevent me from having to close Accordance to use Dashboard.
