Thanks for the report.

This appears to be a generic input bug. I changed the report to reflect this.
Since 9.04 there have been many changes in the X server for input, which means that it is possible the bug has been resolved.

Could you please check again with Ubuntu 10.04?

Changed in xkeyboard-config (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
summary: - Keyboard layout switching does not work
