Sounds like a bug (even sounds like one that's already been reported but
that we're having trouble tracking down).  But I can't find it in the
bug database, so maybe it's something different.  So please M-x
report-emacs-bug an include as much info as possible to help us
reproduce the bug.

I think that's because of function-key-map's remapping of C-x @ S <key>
to S-<key>.  If you add (define-key function-key-map [?\C-x] nil), it
might work (it does for me).
