I have the same situation on my G3. With xev, pressing the capslock send
Press AND Release event (keycode 66), and releasing it also send Press
AND Release. The key associated with this is Ctrl_L. 

True Ctrl-L keycode is 37.

Nevertheless, it is not really a problem for me since I usually use
xmodmap to move capslock to a place where I don't press on it
