Bug#757688: keyboard-configuration: Strange AltGr key

Package: keyboard-configuration
Version: 1.102
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

I am talking about keyboard in Gnome Shell configured for
English (US) and Russian (typewriter), on an ordinary x86 PC
with a regular keyboard.

By AltGr I mean the right Alt key.

When the keyboard is in English mode, AltGr has no effect.

When the keyboard is in Russian mode, holding AltGr temporarily
switches to English mode. (By the way when the keyboard is in Russian mode,
pressing AltGr makes an unpleasant beep, what I reported in an other bug

Make it symmetric: in Russian holding AltGr should temporarily switch to
English and in English to Russian.
