You're right it's not Ctrl+Shift_L but Ctrl_R+Shift_L; see

/suse/werner> xkbcomp -R/usr/share/X11/xkb -xkb $DISPLAY - | grep Multi_key
key <RCTL> { [ Control_R, Multi_key ] };
key <RWIN> { [ Super_R, Multi_key ] };

and this works flawless with GNU Emacs. As you can see the Multi_key is
only available by using the sifted state of the Control_R or Super_R
key and this should also be the default on your display as this is
the default:

/suse/werner> setxkbmap us -print | xkbcomp -R/usr/share/X11/xkb -xkb - - |
grep Multi_key
key <RCTL> { [ Control_R, Multi_key ] };
key <RWIN> { [ Super_R, Multi_key ] };

AFAIK and IMHO you should not map the Multi_key on CapsLock key as this special
physical key switch the state permantently for all key strokes. In other words
do you have tried out any other key? Btw: GNU Emacs is *not* XEmacs and I'm not
the author of any of them but only the maintainer. If you think this is a bug
please report this upstream as I'll not change any line of the C-code of the
GNU Emacs as this is a WORKSFORME as I can demonstrate for my german keyboard
