Bug Description

After boot, from login screen , I can not change layout from keyboard by shortcut (ctrl+shift, alt+shift, Caps lock or any other I choose in keyboard settings)

When locking screen by ctrl-alt-L, when I try to press shortcut keys lock screen disappears for a second showing my desktop, and appears again. Layout not changed also.

Using mouse to switch layout via icon working good.

I tried to change greeter (unity-greeter, lightdm-gtk-greeter) whith no effect.

I can't say if this bug affecting me, but showing user's screen with such an ease defeats the very purpose of locking the workstation, don't you think?
