switching language while renaming in list mode in nautilus acts like Esc button

Asked by soundsbeard on 2017-09-09

To switch language I use Ctrl + Space combination.

In the grid mode Nautilus acts normally:
- I create a folder or document
- I select it and press F2
- I start typing and if the chosen language is wrong I simply delete everything, change language (I use English and Russian layouts) and retype.

In the list mode when I try to switch between languages it behaves like Esc button.

Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

nautilus:
  Installed: 1:3.18.4.is.3.14.3-0ubuntu6
  Candidate: 1:3.18.4.is.3.14.3-0ubuntu6
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.18.4.is.3.14.3-0ubuntu6 500
        500 http://ru.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-updates/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1:3.18.4.is.3.14.3-0ubuntu4 500
        500 http://ru.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 Packages

I guess it is a bug?
