Xubuntu 14.04 - keyboard-layout is only changed after resetting ibus

Bug Description

When one tries to alter the keyboard-layout, the indicator on top of the display keeps displaying the old layout. After resetting ibus (right click on the icon -> reset), the new layout
is shown.

Also notice that the indicated layout for Belgian is wrong. The name "Duits-Belgian" is shown, which make no sense.

From the screenshot, it looks like that dialog is for setting the display language, not the keyboard layout. Also, the indicator is the IBus one, and since the display language is set to Dutch, it translates the "German - Belgian" keyboard layout as "Duits - Belgian". So I don't think this is a bug tbh.
