Bug Description

At least two keyboard layouts configured.
Different keyboard layouts for every application.
Let's say "en" is a default layout (loaded on start-up, in new window...)
Sometimes this happens:

  Window is opened and layout different to default is set. Then switch to another window and work there for a while (no need for typing there). Then come back to the former window and find out that default layout is set which is incorrect.

I was not able to find steps to reproduce it since it has never happened after immediate switch of windows. When you just open them and spend a while by switching them waiting for the bug, it won't happen (or at least not for me). Its after some time (few minutes is enough) when it does.

I am running xfce now installed over gnome unity. The bug is in unity environment too.
