Removing or renaming ~/config/dconf/user file fixes the issue. Still not sure as to why or where <Shift>space was configured to switch input sources.

Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Just encountered this bug after installation.
Luckily I did just one thing differently than usual.

Issue is if Left Shift + Left Alt is set as additional method of switching this Shift + Space will occur.

Proper workaround is to install gnome-tweak-tool and disable that additional shortcut.

If you need any further info, please do let me know.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.
