Just in case it is related, please try UNINSTALLING these extensions and then reboot:

We find a lot of bugs are caused by extensions.

Uninstalling all Gnome extensions doesn't make any difference. Before January 2019 everything worked as expected - with or without extensions. The above described bug came up at around Jan 10 2019, and was never fixed. The fix of bug 1812266 didn't change anything to the better.

Keyboard layout indicator is visible again with current layout.

----------------------------------------

To clarify:
The bug still exists, after Suspend or Screenlock:
1) The Keyboard layout indicator is not visible
2) During the first keyboard usage after suspend, it becomes visible again without any further action.
3) The above manual fix is not needed.
