Yes.  :-)

I'm an older Ubuntu so things may have changed.  Perhaps something's
grabbing the Control key.  Could you repeat the previous tests with a
little more detail?  Enter

    xev | egrep '^Key(Press|Release)|keycode'

switch keyboard focus to the new little window and then tap left Ctrl,
left Shift, and End, once, in order.  Tell us the output along with the
output of

    xmodmap -pke | egrep -i 'control|shift|end'
