Assign a different keysym to the key; the behavior you describe is the
locking behavior that CapsLock has. If you assign a different keysym,
then the phenomenon should be gone.

I guess most keyboards don't have a Hyper key, so you could try Hyper_L.
Or Super_L if Hyper happens to be taken. Alas, X11 doesn't seem to have
a Gold key :-)
