this seems to happen when chinese-pinyin is set as the default layout (after enabling only it and removing all others in system settings, or by having multiple layouts enabled and selecting chinese-pinyin from popup menu in the keyboard), and then launching an application.

  [ Michael Sheldon ]
  * Implement capital letters for Pinyin keyboard, ignore auto-
    capitalisation and always display word ribbon when using Pinyin
    regardless of input hints. (LP: #1281384)
  * Switch back to normal character mode if in shifted mode after
    entering extended characters. (LP: #1264860)

  [ Łukasz 'sil2100' Zemczak ]
  * Quick-fix: play key feedback sound on key-press for all used keys.
    The fix is not really sophisticated, but these parts of code might
    change soon anyway (LP: #1306160)
