[Bug 195982] Re: Shift key (and caps lock) stop working when using VMWare

Okay, let's make some order. We have two separate bugs here:
1. VMware bug: VMware deletes the modifier keys: in VMware console, being focused on the guest OS, holding Ctrl down while moving the mouse out into the host machine, then leaving Ctrl.
This causes all the modifier keys to be deleted : 'xmodmap' command returns an empty list.

2. GTK/GDK bug: when modifier list is empty, gtk apps tend to crash
(segmentation fault) on a keypress. This is the relevant GTK ticket.

Of course, bug #1 leads to bug #2, but these are separate issues.
