Caps lock (mapped to Control) keeps reverting…

I have a bizarre problem that has cropped up recently… I like to keep my Caps Lock key mapped to Control, as having an easy-access Control key is infinitely more useful to me than Caps Lock. A few days ago, it just started reverting on me randomly! I'll try to ^C my way out of something, and instead just get rejected, greeted by a glowing keyboard…

Some recent install must be doing this to me (for whatever reason). Unfortunately, I tend to binge when it comes to software, testing every .app I can get my hands on all at once (recently, it was text editors, again). So while I kind of doubt that anyone knows what is causing this, I'm sort of hoping someone can point me in the right direction for self-discovery.

I guess the main questions are - what process controls that mapping, and what can I monitor to see changes being made? Any guidance in that direction would be most welcome…
