I think that's because of function-key-map's remapping of C-x @ S <key>

to S-<key>. If you add (define-key function-key-map [?\C-x] nil), it
might work (it does for me).
These 3 lines seem to do the swapping I want.
(define-key key-translation-map [(control x)] [(control j)])
(define-key key-translation-map [(control j)] [(control x)])
(define-key function-key-map [(control x)] nil)
Hopefully this will work reliably.
