The OP mentioned i3, an X window manager, more than once, and
specifically used the phrase "terminal emulator," which usually means an
X application that emulates a terminal.  I agree that xev can't test
exactly what your terminal receives, but it can tell you what the X
server saw from the keyboard, and could provide clues as to which key
combinations are or aren't getting to the applications.
