I don't see that option in the preferences dialog - you can indeed alter
the way CapsLock works, and whether the Shift key cancels CapsLock or
not, but it seems to be a latching key in all cases, as far as I can tell.

Just tested it on my Ubuntu Edgy box, and as far I can tell you're
mistaken. In Keyboard preferences, look for the "Layout Options", then
"Compose key position". Now I have a British Thinkpad keyboard. If I
tick "Right alt is compose" then pressing [AltGr] + ['] (that's
apostrophe) then [e] outputs an e acute. But let's say I tick "Caps
Lock is Compose". Now two things happen. First Caps Lock no longer
affects capitalization. And second, it acts just like [AltGr] before.
If I press [Caps Lock] + ['] then [e], it outputs an e acute. But
pressing [Caps Lock] then ['] then [e] outputs an apostrophe then a
normal e. Doesn't that imply it is no longer latching?
