xmodmap make a key into "Control + Control_L" and not "Control_L"

I edited ~/.Xmodmap to set keycode 118 to Control_L, so that I have the same functionality for CTRL on both sides of Space. See line 2:

xmodmap make a key into "Control + Control_L" and not "Control_L"

However, when I test it with "xbindkeys -k", I see that the old CTRL (the left one) is actually "Control + Control_L", which I cannot set in .Xmodmap. It compains when I try to set it as "Control + Control_L".

xmodmap make a key into "Control + Control_L" and not "Control_L"

Right now I the right control doesn't behave a standard control (I cannot do CTRL + F, for example).

I have no use for Control_R. I just want both Ctrl keys to act as the left one.

How can I set the key that sends a scancode that is interpreted as keycode 118 act as the the left CTRL (which is actually interpreted asd m:0x4 + c:37)? I can't figure out the xbindkeys syntax for ~/.xbindkeysrc, which I guess is what I have to do, because I think xmodmap can't bind a key to a combination of keysyms.
