Comment 22 for bug 36812

Hmm, I am not that sure my report is a duplicate -- but if yes, differences:

* I don't do any layout switching, I have only single layout

* issue I described has nothing to do with pressing or releasing

* the problem is that you can assign shift key to keyboard shortcuts like shift+F1 but you cannot assign alt key (shift level3) to such combinations -- in other words, such key can generate only characters (specified in layout) but beside that it is a dead key
