minor rstudio bug when caplock mapped to control

I use Ubuntu + Gnome and re-map the Caps Lock key to control using the Tweak tool (see screenshot).

To my frequent frustration, RStudio treats these two control keys differently. The CapsLock key mostly works for Control, except that it unselects whatever is currently selected in the Console. So every time I want to press Ctrl-C to copy something from the Console, I have to remember to use the real control key, not the Caps Lock key.

What version of RStudio are you using? I just tried this and it seems to work as expected. (Running Ubuntu 18.04 within a Parallels VM, macOS 10.14.6 host; RStudio 1.2.1335)

I'm using RStudio 1.2.1335 on Ubuntu Disco, but I've suffered from this bug since Ubuntu Cosmic and probably back to Ubuntu 18.04. It happens with both Gnome/X11 and Gnome/Wayland. Here's a video.
