Description Meni Taub 2004-06-08 00:12:00 UTC
When setting the layout-switching key combo to Alt+Shift (like in windows), the
switching occurs on key down event of the shift key. That conflicts with key
combos that start with Alt+shift (e.g Alt+Shift+N). They cause a erroneous
layout switch. IMHO only when the user releases the Shift key layout switch
should occur.

Also in Win there is a difference between left and right Alt+Shift. When one has
more then 2 layouts, left Alt+shift rotate them one way while the right
Alt+Shift rotate them the other.

Thanks, and God bless all those who toil on OSS ;-)
