bug#24456: 25.1; [PATCH] Caps-lock doesn't affect interpretation of key

Hi.

I noticed that on some platforms the caps-lock state can affect how key
chords are interpreted. It is currently inconsistent across platforms.
The behavior that feels correct to me is that caps-lock should affect
the case of letters as they are typed, and NOTHING else.

On gtk, if caps-lock is ON then Control+s produces C-S-s and
Control+Shift+s produces C-s; this is backwards from what I think it
should do.

On OSX it looks like with caps-lock, both shifted and non-shifted
presses produce C-s, which is 50% wrong regardless of how one thinks
this SHOULD work.

On Windows it does the right thing.

In a console on Debian it looks like Control+Shift+s produces C-s
regardless of caps-lock, but I suspect this has a deeper cause than what
this patch touches.


I have tested this patch on gtk (fixes it) and the console (doesn't
change anything). Hopefully it makes osx work properly while letting
windows builds keep working.

* src/keyboard.c (make_lispy_event): when a user pressed key-chords the
caps-lock no longer affects the "shift" state of the generated chord.  For
instance Control+s produces C-s regardless of the caps-lock state.  And
Control+Shift+s produces C-S-s regardless of the caps-lock state.
