OK, I included a lot of other additional information; but when I had this text included in the issue description, Google Code refused to create the issue.  Instead, it cleared my whole description and said "Please provide a description".  Buggy much.  Here's the additional information.

A good way to see key codes is with the Key Codes app from the App Store.  Here's a good way to reproduce it:

1. Start the mac.
2. Open Key Codes.
3. Type Ctrl-Shift-Space in the Key Codes window, you should see:
Key Down
Unicode:		0 / 0x0
Keys:		⇧^Space
Key Code:	49 / 0x31
Modifiers:	393475 / 0x60103
4. Start Chrome.
5. Go back to Key Codes and hit Ctrl-Shift-Space again.  You will see nothing appear.
6. Restart Finder (Opt-click the Finder icon)
7. Go back to Key Codes and hit Ctrl-Shift-Space again.  The keys are once again detected.
8. Restart Chrome.
9. Go back to Key Codes and hit Ctrl-Shift-Space again.  You will see nothing appear.

Note that this bug appears to have been introduced earlier than Chrom(ium) 17.

This is bug is possibly the cause behind this issue when using Java IDE "Intellij IDEA" and Chrome:
I have written a plugin that automatically restarts Finder every time Idea gains focus. That hack fixes the Smart Completion issue. Here it is - or Maybe you'll find it useful.
