Unable to change window state with keyboard in gnome shell (such as Always on _Top - <Alt+Space+t>)

Bug #1725706 reported by Norbert
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-shell (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install Ubuntu 17.10
2. Login to the default Ubuntu session
3. Open any windowed application such as Nautilus or `gnome-terminal`
3. Click <Alt+Space> to show current window settings
4. Try to set "Always on Top" property with keyboard shortcut (<t>)

Expected results:
* window reacts on <t> and set on top as requested

Actual results:
* window does not react on <t>

"Always on Top" is just an illustration. Mnemonics for other (Minimize, Maximize, Move, Resize, Always on Visible Workspace, Move to workspace down, etc) do not defined and do work too.

Submit the bug upstream and we can also work on a solution on this, I don't think there's no reason why it couldn't be accepted.
