  Unicode input with keyboard (CTRL-SHIFT-U) doesn't work

Status in Chromium Browser:
Status in chromium-browser package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I had already filed this upstream:
  https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=575994 but since
  I'm using Ubuntu, I'm also going to file this on Launchpad to see if
  it's either an upstream or an Ubuntu bug.

  UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML,
  like Gecko) Ubuntu Chromium/47.0.2526.73 Chrome/47.0.2526.73

  Steps to reproduce the problem:
  1. Try to insert a Unicode/UTF-8 Character like "♥"
  2. Press Ctrl-Shift-U and the hex number (2665, like in the example above) and press enter
  3. The character does not get inserted, instead, whitespace is inserted

  What is the expected behavior?
  The character should be inserted... all other GTK/Qt/X applications insert it

  What went wrong?
  Just trying to insert a Unicode character. Had to use the Character map to put it in.

  Did this work before? N/A
