Bug Description

There was similar bug

Sebastien Bacher recommended to open a new one if problem still exists in 12.04.

So, here it is, please take look at video attached in order to reproduce it.

Basicly, I opened Gedit and Terminal, changed keyboard layout in Gedit, switched to another keyboard in Terminal, and indicator stuck in Serbian (Latin) even if Gedit was in Cyrillic layout.

I have this problem in Ubuntu 12.04 too. When i open Gedit, Gvim, Terminal, Mozilla or any other application and change from [en] to [ru] — keyboard layout change but indicator doesn't change.

I can confirm it.

Most often it happens in Mono and Wine programs.
And very seldom with native linux applications.
Also often happens after computer wake up.
And BTW - indicator finally changed if switch keyboard layout several times.

Very annoying bug - because sometimes unclear what is a real keyboard layout now.

Ubuntu 12.04
