[ltp] Re-mapped End key results in stuck E key

Hello -

I've re-mapped the End key to Control on my X1 Carbon (second
generation) via a udev rule. Until a recent BIOS update, this was
working just fine. However, post as of at least 1.12 and including 1.13,
the Control-E combination (End-E with the mapping) results in the E key
getting stuck. Hitting any other key after the E gets stuck will cause
the repeat to stop. However, the next time E is pressed, it will not
register. It has to be pressed a third time, at which point it will
register (and not repeat.)

I realize this is quite a weird bug, and an odd circumstance leading to
it. However, I am not the only one to have experienced this issue.
There is another user on the Arch Linux forums in the same situation
[1]. The repeat only happens with the E key, and does not happen with
the same mapping applied to the Home key.

Any help would be much appreciated.
