Bug#507179: gnome-core: issue with Ctrl key getting "stuck"

Package: gnome-core
Version: 1:2.22.2~5
Severity: normal


If I push the space bar, and still while doing this, push once on Ctrl
and release the space bar, the effect is like if the Ctrl key is still
being pushed. I.e. in xterm if I left click in the window, the main option
menu is appearing.

I have to restart the Gnome session to get a normal behavior again.

Tested withing xterm, and Iceweasel address bar with left side Crtl key.

Thank you.
