Thanks for taking the time to test, but I may have posted a bit
prematurely again.  Further searching has revealed that the problem
is with the newest (and unstable in Gentoo) xkeyboard-config-2.4.1.
This package contains the configuration files for the X keyboards.

Hopefully, the next release will correct things, but otherwise
a downgrade to 2.3 will help if the problem affects you.  Most
users probably don't have much need for Shift-Fn.
