You were perfectly right: RALT-Shift-U worked, while Shift-RALT-U did not.  
I have now replaced the line with

  key <RALT>  { type[Group1]="TWO_LEVEL", [ ISO_Level3_Shift,  
ISO_Level3_Shift ]  };

and all seems to work fine. That is probably always the problem when you  
cut-and-paste together a syntax that you do not understand.

Thanks for all the answers,
