KeyEventTranslations: how to make them work with *two* modifiers? (Both Shift and Control)

Though it's undocumented, it's possible to add the shortcut key Ctrl-Tab
for cycling notebooks by adding

	Item[KeyEvent["Tab", Modifiers -> {Control}],
	FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["CycleNotebooksForward"]]],

in KeyEventTranslations.tr

I would like to add Ctrl-Shift-Tab for cycling backwards, but it seems

	Item[KeyEvent["Tab", Modifiers -> {Control, Shift}],
	FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["CycleNotebooksForward"]]],

does not work.  (The front end token is correct and it works, but
Control-Shift-Tab is not noticed.)

It seems the front end is seeing Control-Tab even when I hit
Control-Shift-Tab.  Is there a solution to make it distinguish
Control-Tab and Control-Shift-Tab?
