Can you check if that isn't a bug with Epiphany? And if it occurs in 
Geany as well? Geany's approach to keybindings is most trivial (at it's 
core it does if (keyval == $KEY && modifier == $MODIFIER)). Gtk cannot 
do worse, so I expect it to have something more smart (or be equally 
dumb). So it sounds unlikely that Gtk has a locale-related problem that 
Geany does not.

Best regards
