Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Firefox, gedit, LibreOffice or other program with GTK GUI
2. Press Save
3. In opened GtkFileChooserDialog press "Create Folder" and try to change keyboard layout.

Expected results:
1. Keyboard layout changed
2. You can enter desired name of a folder on desired keyboard layout
3. New folder in desired location is appeared in file tree.

Actual results:
* After keyboard layout change the desired folder disappears and is not created.

The aforementioned procedure works normally in Ubuntu 12.04, but does not work in Ubuntu 14.04.
Tested on Unity and GNOME (Compiz and Metacity) sessions of Ubuntu 14.04 beta2 (4cf9e5ef2c1c362317c90312c76cfda0 *ubuntu-14.04-beta2-desktop-i386.iso) and on GNOME sessions of Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 beta2 (b185554acd22600b96c6c5cc2fee0551 *ubuntu-gnome-14.04-beta2-desktop-i386.iso).

Please fix this bug before Ubuntu 14.04 final release.

This bug also present in Ubuntu 13.10 file manager (Files v3.8.2) when you create new file or folder and type it name for the first time.

This bug was fixed in Ubuntu 14.04 file manager (Files v3.10.1) in regular windows. But when you create new folder in "Save As" dialog windows this bug still appears.

It's a usability issue that doesn't limit the functionality of a core package.

One more way to reproduce:
Open any website or web-application, where text input fields reacts on focus change (Twitter, Chromium or Firefox page inspector) and try to change layout in there (post on Twitter or CSS-rules edit in inspectors). Input field lost his focus and just disappears.

Expected results same as here in #5:
1. Keyboard layout changed
2. You can enter text on any language without lost focus.
