After finding out How to make Caps Lock change keyboard layout without delay

I realized that I'm also not fully releasing the Caps Lock sometimes before pressing next key. Is that possible to prevent it waiting for the keyup event?

The answers from #2 on in this thread might interest you, @int_ua. Try grp:caps_switch and grp:caps_toggle. See if this command works for you: setxkbmap -layout 'us,ua,ru' -option 'grp:caps_toggle' & –  Glutanimate Mar 8 '13 at 3:54
I already use caps_toggle. The problem is that I type quite fast and sometimes start typing characters before releasing the Caps Lock so the layout doesn't change. –  int_ua Mar 8 '13 at 5:58
