Take the key to the left of "1" (varies depending on layout).
Under sugar, in a terminal or write activity or similar: Hold left shift and HOLD the key in question. Release the key in question after a few seconds - note that the character only appears on-screen when you release the key.
Now do the same with right shift. The character appears on press (rather than on release).
Same thing for the key to the right of ":" on a US keyboard.
The problem does not happen on a physical terminal, implying an X or evdev bug.
