Bug Description

I was toggling between text entry languages when the keyboard entry suddenly stopped working. Even the onscreen keyboard was not able to entry any keys.

Yes the mouse did work, and I was able to use the Super key to bring up Unity's application menu (on this computer I use Unity). Typing text didn't work, though.
