There are two separate contexts here - console and X-windows. I'll assume

 Personally I hate caps-lock. The following command in .xinitrc will
disable it:

	 xmodmap -e "clear lock"

The command 'xmodmap -pm' will list your modifiers.

Did you try my suggestion of running 'tcpdump'?
 It will show what is happening and should give an answer.

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
