Sticky Orca Key

Since I don't know whether this problem is specific to Ubuntu, or 
generalizes to Orca, I cross-post.

Under some rare set of conditions, my Orca modifier key gets stuck 
(software, only).  I find the only sure way to undo this is to restart 
the gui session, but suspect there is a more-convenient workaround or 
fix.  I do not have sticky keys enabled in the Assistive Tech preferences.
