I guess it could be the same problem we have with the Greek keyboard 
It is worth a try.

Edit the file:


and add the following line in the "Global Shortcuts" section:

Switch to Next Keyboard Layout=default(Alt+Shift_L)

(Obviously you will need to adjust this for both shifts, I am not 
certain of the shortcut, maybe Shift_L+Shift_R)

if the little flag in the tray reacts to the keys, you are all set.
