indicator-keyboard don't work correctly

indicator-keyboard (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

My hotkeys are set to Ctrl+Space.

Sometimes after system boot layout switching hotkeys are not working at all. To make them work I need to open layout switching properties and set hotkeys again (even if they are the same). Thereafter they start working.

But, layout switching is not working correctly.

Steps to reproduce:

1. If I press Ctrl+Space - layout is not switching.
2. Holding Ctrl - release Space button and press Space again. Layout switched normally.

If you release Ctrl, then to switch layout you need to repeat this steps again. (Pressing Space 2 times, but not 1 time.)

I will refresh information, - now I have a problem with keys Shift+Alt too.
1. If I press Shift + Alt is not switching.
2. Holding Shift - release Alt button and press Alt again. Layout switched normally.

If you release Shift, then to switch layout you need to repeat this steps again. (Pressing Alt 2 times, but not 1 time, sometimes)

When I install this combination (Shift+Alt) onetime - 2 days this worked correctly, but have a problem on third day (all updates installated every day, proposed repository is switch on)
