I'm using eclipse 2021-03 (4.19.0) on Ubuntu 20.04.2 (Gnome 3 on Xorg) and I'm using a custom keyboard layout, where I've mapped Caps-i/j/k/l to the cursor keys, so I can leave my right hand in it's natural position to navigate.

When using eclipse, the content assist pop-up closes when I press the Caps-Lock key, regardless of whether I'm using my custom layout or the unmodified de or en keyboard layout.

Here's what xev shows when pressing and releasing the Caps-Lock:

KeyPress event, serial 38, synthetic NO, window 0x3a00001,
    root 0x7ab, subw 0x0, time 1012987776, (161,-22), root:(203,236),
    state 0x0, keycode 66 (keysym 0xfe03, ISO_Level3_Shift), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 38, synthetic NO, window 0x3a00001,
    root 0x7ab, subw 0x0, time 1012988060, (161,-22), root:(203,236),
    state 0x80, keycode 66 (keysym 0xfe03, ISO_Level3_Shift), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes: 
    XFilterEvent returns: False


Any ideas how I can work around that? In other applications the Caps-Lock does not have this effect. If you don't know a solution, maybe you know how eclipse handles keyboard input? Which layers between Xorg and eclipse are involved in the processing of the events?
