Well, I don't know all of the internal stuff and how complex it is. I was 
happy to have the autorepeat of modifiers fixed for me.
I remember I had problems to bind a Super+X shortcut some while ago when Super 
repeated. But that can be fixed on the application side, too. 
You know better how to fix it and if at all.

What side effects would my patch have? It just looked like a real bug.
