Bug Description

This is all in the live environment, pre-installation, i will update with info post-installation.
The input switcher in the system tray locks up input when right-clicked on.
the menu will eventually appear, but it takes way to long, launching LibreOffice is quicker.
there are also ways to configure input, either the config via the system icon, which is separate from the one in the Hardware settings menu. also during the installation when setting keyboard-layout, the chosen layout is not reflected in either the system-tray setting, or the one from hardware-settings.

The assistive technologies icon also doubled. not sure if that's related, but it happened after installation.

also found that setting the input in the system tray setting is not reflected in the one from hardwaresettings, but still takes affect.
and setting the keyboard layout in the one from hardwaresettings is not reflected in the one from systemtray, and does not take affect either.

and heres the screenshot from setting set in hardwaresettings, when not taking affect.
(system tray is set to dvorak, hardaware is set to querty).
