"Shift with Numeric Keypad works as in MS Windows" implemented partially

Bug Description

I usually use Control-Insert, Shift-Insert as the keys for clipboard operations, but Insert in my case is on numeric keypad (Num Lock Off). If I use it as by default, Ctrl-Insert works, Shift-Insert enters 0. If I activate "Shift with Numeric Keypad works as in MS Windows" option, both key sequences don't work. (On Windows Insert key on the numeric keypad always works for Ctrl-Ins,Shift-Ins clipboard command)

Note: I suppose it has something to do with standard controls (edit, memo) used in general applications (for example Places-Search for files field, entering name of a new folder, gedit). In application with its own controls (Firefox, LibreOffice Write), Control-(Numeric)Insert, Shift-(Numeric)Insert work correctly. So I supposedly should choose "gtk" package, but there's no with exactly this name.
