Keyboard layout indicator shows incorrect language

Bug Description

Language selector state is inconsistent when switching between windows.
I have two keyboard layouts installed: English (Dvorak) and Russian. Different layouts are used for individual windows, new windows use the default layout.
The problem is: when I switch from a window with Russian layout to a window with English layout, the language selector does not change from 'ru' to 'en'. If I try to type, English layout is used, but the language selector still shows 'ru'. This works the other way round, changing from the window with English layout to the window with Russian layout does not change the language selector from 'en' to 'ru'.
This worked in Natty, but is broken in Oneiric somehow.

Thanks for your help to improve Ubuntu by reporting this bug! It's not related to the language-selector package though; I changed to a package that's more likely the correct one.

Still having this in 12.04. I'm using English, Lithuanian and Russian layouts and whenever I switch to Lithuanian, 'en' is displayed.
