Ok so in your case, your hitting the “no keypress before init”. Not sure
if there's already a bug opened, I'll point you to it later.

For your case, that's another story, and thus another bug. What puzzles
me is that when you described the situation in your first mail, it was
kind of exactly that (no init before keypresses).
When you say that layout switching is working *before* Xfce is run, how
do you try that?
