bug#24453: Hyper and super keys don't work in some branches

Finally, I found the problem. 

Something in Emacs changed and now an Autohotkey script that I use to emulate German
words is in conflict with Emacs. It was difficult to find because the script works in previous Emacs
versions and all other applications. So, I need to change the logic to the new conditions of Emacs 25.

Thank you for your help,

Searching for a solution of the super and hyper keys problem, I found that even though the super
is not working as prefix, the use of Shift + s is interpreted as super, for example:

Shift + super + a is interpreted as s-a
Shift + super + z in interpreted as s-z
Shift + super + d in interpreted as s-d
and so on...

Maybe you have experience with something similar. My definitely solution
will be eliminating the use of super and hyper in my configuration. But I would like to
listen first some final comments/recommendations for you.
