Bug Description

This is a very specific and limited bug so I do not consider it a high priority, but I also could not find it listed anywhere else.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Enable Mouse setting "Show position of the mouse when the Control key is pressed”
2. In Caja (I'm using version 1.12.7) try to rename a file (Right click > Rename)
3. Keyboard shortcuts do not work (Ctrl+z, Ctrl+x, Ctrl+c, Ctrl+v)

I have confirmed that keyboard shortcuts work in other programs (Google Chrome and Pluma are two I tested) when the "Show position" option is enabled. I have also confirmed that when "Show position” is disabled shortcuts work as expected in Caja.
