It seems that Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with MATE Desktop Environment does not have this
So MATE rocks!

Pressing any global keyboard shortcut causes temporary loss of focus

When pressing any global keyboard shourtcut (configurable via System
settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts; i.e. for switching keyboard layout,
volume up/down), focus temporary switches from active text input to
something else, then restores back shortly. Maybe even active window
loses focus, but window frame does not shows this (window header
remains to look active).
For example: when I press ctrl+shift here to switch keyboard layout,
when writing this description, yellow frame disappears from text input
box, text caret disappears too; they appear again when releasing
ctrl+shift. The same occurs in all other programs, i.e. terminal.
It causes serious annoyance, for example in Twitter when losing focus
in Reply text box, reply rolls up and I have to click it again with
mouse and set caret to correct place each time I switch keyboard
Other key combinations, not only ctrl+shift, also cause this.
It is especially annoying when using keyboard layout switch shortcut
handled by the same subsystem (media-keys plugin):
do_switch_input_source_action (manager, type);
(Original gnome-settings-daemon, from which unity-settings-daemon was
forked, does not use media-keys plugin to switch keyboard layout).
For other layout switching problems introduced in Ubuntu 13.10 you can see
