Bug Description

When I change windows I get keyboard layout changed, but keyboard layout icon is still displaying the old keyboard layout icon. This can be very confusing when working with different keyboard layouts in different windows.

You can see how to reproduce this bug in the video attached as well as keyboard layout settings.

If you need any extra info, don't hesitate to ask.

Test case:
1. Configure two keyboard layouts (us and other);
2. Open a gedit window, set the layout to other;
3. Open a terminal window, ensure that the layout is us;
4. Switch to gedit window.

What should happen:
Layout indicator should display other layout's name.

What happens instead:
Layout indicator displays "us", but typing text results in text in other layout.
