How do I get Linux (preferably, without binding to wm) to wait until all keys in the combination are released before applying it? In my case, it is impossible to Copy/Paste text from/into terminal since Ctrl+Shift+C firstly triggers a language switch and ignores the rest of the combination ('C').

Which Linux distribution are you using? I tried with Ubuntu 12.04 and it behaves as it should. – Dennis Jun 24 '12 at 22:09
Yep, in Ubuntu it's default behavior - that's why I'm sure about the existence of solution. I'm currently using Arch Linux. – whoever Jun 25 '12 at 7:53

This is a long time bug reported back in 2004 here (and here).

As you can check in the previous links there are already patches for this bug, so althoug the problem isn't completely solved (check this comment), and depending on your distribution, your specific problem should be fixed as soon as the patches are pushed upstream.
