Bug Description

Lost ability to assign Caps Lock or even Ctrl-Shift as a keyboard layout switch.
"Switch to next source using:" field simply does not react on modifier keys combination.
It reacts only if threre is symbol key in combination.
For example:
Ctrl-Shift - does not work
Ctrl-Space - works

I confirm this. Please fix this bug.
I need normal keyboard switching method - for example Ctrl+Shift for switching between layouts like in M$ Window$ and Ubuntu Precise.
