; ; keybinding no longer works

In the past, the following keybindings worked:

'atom-text-editor':
    '; ;': 'keystroke escape ctrl-s'

'atom-text-editor.vim-mode-plus.insert-mode':
    '; ;': 'keystroke escape ctrl-s'

'atom-text-editor.vim-mode-plus.normal-mode':
    '; ;': 'keystroke escape ctrl-s'

Now, I am using Atom 1.54 x64 and vim-mode-plus and it no longer works.

Basically, I just want to type two semi-colons and always have Atom save the buffer file.

I’ve tried lots of things for 3 hours (like replacing ’ with ", removing the space between ; ;, and nothing works.

Please let me know how to get this keybinding working again.

Atom started magically working (sometimes) with this keymap.cson :

'atom-text-editor':
    '; ;': 'keystroke escape ctrl-s'

'atom-text-editor.vim-mode-plus.insert-mode':
    '; ;': 'vim-mode-plus:activate-normal-mode'

'atom-text-editor.vim-mode-plus.normal-mode':
    '; ;': 'core:save' 

It’s not consistent.
