Bug Description

After installing Ubuntu 16.04 I've changed text entry settings to contain two languages as follows:
1) Korean (Hangul)(IBus)
2) Russian
Korean IM can produce both - English (default) & Hangul characters, so having one more English (US) is not needed and confusing.

When the screen is locked by pressing Super+L or automatically after timeout, language selector contains just one item - Russian, which is totally useless to enter normal passwords. So the screen is effectively locked out without the possibility to unlock the session.

I would expect to see Korean IM with Hangul character composing disabled, or at least English (US) temporarily added to the list instead of Korean, if it must be filtered out.
