> The issue itself is a linux/solaris specific. Alt-Gr modifier bit (1<<5) is not set in the KeyPress event which is sent by the closing key in the combination (which action should be modified). On platforms other than linux/solaris the ModifierRobotKeyTest.java successfully passes but takes a lot of time to execute.

> Java implementation uses Mode_switch native key for mapping to Alt-Gr.
> But Mode_switch is not processed as a modifier key by the native platform while ISO_Level3_Shift is processed as modifier. So, changing this mapping solves the problem.
> Also, the ModifierRobotKeyTest.java is modified in the fix to decrease its execution time.
