GUI Keyboard Event Drops

Bug Description

I have written a Patience Solitaire game called Open Flowers with Racket 6.1. Running in the Ubuntu GUI it sometimes does not react to keyboard shortcuts as defined in it's menu: the first keyboard shortcut is delivered and handled. The following keyboard shortcut is not seen by my application handlers and keyboard shortcuts only start working again after some display change.

When trying to debug this issue with a warning level of /debug/ for /Racket/ I get two different behaviors that seem to remain constant during runtime:
1) the bug vanishes and all events are handled and delivered perfectly
2) the bug is still there: Racket's debug messages do show events on keypresses but my application does not always receive them.

I have had similar but perhaps unrelated experiences in my current Ubuntu 15.04 with Emacs and Dash or Compiz. Most of this seems to be unreproducible. This behavior did not occur prior to my change to Ubuntu with Racket 6.1 on Mac OS X.

As soon as I have more time to investigate this I might add additional information.
