One of the "shift" or "meta" keys is being dropped when used in a
shortcut combination that includes both

For example the following lines are defined in my emacs config:

    (global-set-key (kbd "M-S->") 'end-of-buffer)
    (global-set-key (kbd "M-S-<right>") 'mark-word-right)

and according to the "describe-key" command they are, respectively,
interpreted as:

    1. M-.
    2. <right> (translated from <S-right>)

My keyboard's configuration is standard US English
