With GNOME 3.6, I can only get 2 keys to get highlighted (if you press B N and M in sequence, M will only be highlighted when you release B or N, for example).

That seems to be fine behaviour.
Comment 2 Martin Simon 2012-10-17 05:14:37 EDT
Yes, that fine to highlight only two keys in a moment as you said. But when I press B, N and M in sequence, I got highlighted B, N and Control L. I just don't know - why "Control L"? It should be fine with a limit of two keys, but there are 3 and the last it's not what I actually pressed.

And a small note:
If I press in sequence Q, W and E, exactly these keys are highlighted - no "Control L"

this works well now in GNOME-3.8
