gnome-screensaver (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I have Ubuntu 13.10 with all updates (normal and -proposed).
I have two keyboard layouts - Russian and English.
Before screen locking (with Ctrl+Alt+L) I have English layout.

After activating gnome-screensaver I can't unlock my laptop. Gnome-screensaver is running, showed me my username and text field for password (there is "En" in right of it - so English layout is selected), I enter my password (without errors with Caps Lock off), but gnome-screensaver does not unlock screen and asks me for enter password again.

It seems that gnome-screensaver can't unlock my system.
I can get access to desktop only from another terminal (Ctrl+Alt+F1) by restaring XServer with "sudo service lightdm restart".

For keyboard layout switching I use Alt+Shift.
All packages are from official Ubuntu repositories. I have only one PPA - ppa:freefilesync/ffs - for FreeFileSync (it does not contain system packages).
