Bug Description

Text entry doesn't properly accept Ctrl+[letter] based shortcuts when Caps Lock is on

[Test case]
0) Set Caps-Lock on in your keyboard
1) Open dash, and write something
2) Ctrl+A should select all the text, Ctrl+C should copy,
   Ctrl+V should paste and Ctrl+X should cut

Currently they don't work unless caps-lock is turned off

[Possible regression]
Ctrl+[letter] shortcuts or Ins based shortcuts for text selection handling won't work anymore
