[Regression] While unpressing layout switch hotkey Shift is not
handled as pressed.
Status in xorg-server package in Ubuntu:
While switching keyboard layout with alt+shift and upressing alt (while shift
is still pressed) the next character will be typed in lower case, not in upper,
i.e. shift is not registered as pressed while it is pressed. It's very annoying
since I found out that I often switching layout just to press '?' in english in
the middle of finishing sentence without unpressing shift and after update this
workflow is broken. Bug appeared after an update from 1.18 to 1.19.
Since as I know ubuntu applies some patches against 865 bug it can be
Distro: Ubuntu 16.04
Xorg version: 1.19.3 (hwe-16.04)
