$ git bisect log > bibisect-linux-64-6.0.log

Starting with version 6.0 recoding of selected text typed in the wrong layout  using xneur is performed incorrectly. 
How to check if the error exists.
1) to start writer
2) to type QWERTY in document editing window
3) select the typed line pressing <Ctrl-Home><Ctrl-Shift-End>
4) Press <Shift-PauseBreak> (default short key of xneur to recode from one layout to another)
5) Correct result will be ЙЦУКЕН. Wrong result may be |QWERT. 
6) Subsequent pressing of the <Shift-PauseBreak> if the selection remains active will result in switching between  QWERTY and ЙЦУКЕН in correct case. In wrong case there is a sequence similar to 

The bug doess not exist in the versions 5.4.x and earlier.

The exact same bug takes place in the libreoffice from Fedora Core 26 repository libreoffice-

QA can not a resolution on this patch. This can be both our bug and the flaw in the program X Neural Switcher.
I add the developer (Caolán McNamara) who made the patch to СС.

I can't really tell either. But we should be free to change the internal priority of our events without worrying about something in the outside world trying to intercept keyboard events so sound inherently fragile in the xneur side of things.
Comment 4 McAaron 2018-03-27 16:25:35 UTC
I'm sorry for reopening the bug.
But other office applications all work Ok. 
Impress works good, Draw works good, but only Writer corrupts the text.

McAaron: can you please report this to xneur instead? Thanks.
