Bug Description

I switch between to keyboard layouts from English to Tamil. If the leave the machine unused for few minutes the screen gets locked asking for a password. The language of keyboard is indicated at the side of the box where pass word is to be entered. This always shows as en meaning English, while the keyboard layout I have chosen is Tamil. I have installed the Tamil keyboard using m17n and the version of Ubuntu is 11.10

The two letters adjacent to the password entry box shall display the current language of the keyboard selected, and it can also display the short cut key to switch the language
