Bug Description

When enabling two or more keyboards layouts (for example, US English and Russian), there is this issue:

1. You have switched to the other layout (such as Russian).
2. The screensaver is activated.
3. The keyboard layout in the screensaver remains in Russian, and it is impossible to change to English in order to type your password!

(the workaround is to click to "Switch user", then type the password for the locked account. The layout has been switched back to English - primary layout).
