I've created a minimal example of the problem:

//gcc -Wall KeyMap-test.c -o KeyMapTest `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-3.0`
//Tested on debian stable and GTK3.22.18

static void callback (GtkWidget * widget, GdkEventKey * event)
   guint keyval;
   g_print ("key press event: keyval %d (%s)\n", event->keyval, 
   gdk_keymap_translate_keyboard_state (gdk_keymap_get_default (), 
event->hardware_keycode,0,0, &keyval, NULL, NULL, NULL); 
   g_print ("After keymap translate keyval %d (%s)\n", keyval, 
int main(int argc, char **argv)
   gtk_init(&argc, &argv);

   GtkWidget *top_window=gtk_window_new(GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
   g_signal_connect (top_window, "destroy", G_CALLBACK(gtk_main_quit), NULL);
   g_signal_connect (G_OBJECT(top_window), "key-press-event", G_CALLBACK 
(callback), NULL);
   gtk_widget_show_all (top_window);


   return 0;  

The output on setting a US keyboard in the terminal with a UK keyboard
as the desktop default and pressing the key code 51

rshann@debian:~$ ./KeyMapTest 
key press event: keyval 92 (backslash)
After keymap translate keyval 35 (numbersign)

The US key map is used for the GtkWindow widget to provide the keyval
92 but then the UK keymap is used for the call to
gdk_keymap_translate_keyboard_state() giving the keyval 35

Is this a bug in Gtk 3.22?
