I'm currently using Fedora 29 KDE Spin, I noticed that CTRL + ALT + A does not work in spacemacs, and the key combination does not seem to work anywhere. Some people advised me that it might be due to a bug in the kernel.

Here is my current keyboard configuration with Xmodmap (basically switching Caps_Lock with BackSpace and then making CTRL and ALT sticky keys):

[---@localhost ~]$ cat .Xmodmap
! -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
! swap keys {BackSpace, Caps_Lock}
! Use xev to get keycode, keysym

clear control
remove Lock = Caps_Lock
keycode  66 = BackSpace NoSymbol BackSpace
keycode  22 = Caps_Lock NoSymbol Caps_Lock
keycode 105 = Menu NoSymbol Menu
keycode 135 = Control_R NoSymbol Control_R
add Lock = Caps_Lock
add control = Control_R Control_L

Here is the output of xev when pressing CTRL + ALT + A:

enter image description here

I myself cannot even determine if the result shows something is wrong or not.
