Bug Description

I'm trying to use python-keybinder to bind a global hotkey like '<Control><Alt><Shift>a', but it does not seem to work.

I think it is related to this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/kupfer/+bug/753871

I've attached a very simple script to re-create the bug. For example, binding to '<Control>m' or '<Control>M' works as expected, but binding to '<Shift>m' or '<Shift>M' doesn't work at all. Binding to 'M' seems to work just as if one was binding to 'm'.

N.B. Binding to 'exclam' works as if one was pressing '<Shift>1'. As far as I can tell, this is expected behavior.

Thanks!

Version info:
pygobject 2.28.6
pygtk 2.24.0
python-keybinder 0.2.2

<Shift> doesn't work at all. Script attached by topicstarter is fully confirmed. Why so critical bug is ignored? Because of this I have to avoid the use any combinations with Shift
