I attached patch from ArchLinux AUR (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages
/freedesktop-bug-865.patch?h=xorg-server-bug865 ). This patch is stable
and reliable. ArchLinux users are happy with it.
It fixes current bug on Ubuntu Bionic Beaver 18.04 LTS.
I have tested it with <Ctrl+Shift> keyboard layout switcher on GNOME
(DESKTOP_SESSION="ubuntu") and MATE desktop (DESKTOP_SESSION="mate").
Please kindly review it and consider applying it before official final release
of 18.04 LTS.
I'm ready to test proposed packages which (I hope) you would create.
As the result Ubuntu users will be as happy as ArchLinux's users.

Tried only with ctrl+shift, maybe behaves the same for other modifier
key combinations when used as shortcut for switching layouts.
- Set ctrl+shift as shortcut for switching keyboard layouts
- Try to use ctrl+shift+v, ctrl+shift+c in Terminal -- it doesn't work
(actually Terminal window loses focus when ctrl+shift is pressed, and layout is
