Yes. The same behavior occurs whether I will use F2 or Shift-F6 for
renaming a file. I will have to take back however that ESC also gets
ignored as ESC works as expected (it cancels whatever renaming I've done).

I'm on Debian testing/unstable (jessie/sid).
$ apt-cache policy libgtk2.0-0 | grep -i installed
Installed: 2.24.24-1

Indeed I can use those keys in question to move around in file list, but
when it comes to renaming a file those keys are being rendered "numb". I've
tried with no other program running in the background and yet the problem
still remains. I've noticed that as soon as I press F2 (or Shift-F6) it's
as if the gnome-commander window loses focus (it becomes inactive).

I don't think I'll be able to do that, at least not soon, as there is
no DSL availability where I am yet and I'm on GPRS/3G at the moment.
