I can't determine how many users want to have this bug fixed. So we can start with the complete working instruction:

1. Set Ctrl+Shift keyboard layout switcher on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
2. Ensure that Ctrl+Shift+ interference exists
3. Enable "deb-src" sources (via `software-properties-gtk`), then apply the patch

cd ~/Downloads
apt-get source xserver-xorg-core
cd xorg-server-1.19.6/
wget https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/plain/freedesktop-bug-865.patch?h=xorg-server-bug865 -O freedesktop-bug-865.patch
patch xkb/xkbActions.c < freedesktop-bug-865.patch

sudo apt-get install devscripts
sudo apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-core
debuild -uc -us
sudo dpkg -i ../x*.deb

4. Reboot and test again.
