"Make CapsLock an additional Ctrl" should be under "CapsLock key behavior," not "Ctrl key position."

Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

If you open Keyboard Preferences, then go to the Layouts tab, then select the "layout options..." button, the setting "Make CapsLock an additional Ctrl" should be under "CapsLock key behavior," not "Ctrl key position," as it is a much more logical place for it, as well as being mutually exclusive with the other options in the CapsLock heading.

This really is a duplicate of bug 382301 but this has seen more activity so I don't know if it should be marked the other way around.

Thanks Thomas; I should have caught that. Since this is triaged I'm marking bug 382301 as the duplicate, even though it came earlier (per https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage#Marking%20duplicate)

Can you confirm whether this is still an issue in natty?

If you don't mind, it would be very helpful if you could update the bug
report in launchpad to 'Fix Released' if it is no longer an issue for
you, or if it is still occurring under natty, please tag the bug 'natty'
so it's easier for us to track.
