I want to point out that I have two independent computers here:
1) laptop - uses gdm to start xfce4
2) server - has no gdm installed and I launch xfce4 manually (startx)
Both are experiencing the same issue. I am willing to debug further.
However, it has been more than a month and I forgot some of the internals
I saw in the keyboard plugin. Would it help if I post here the exact
mechanism how the plugin gets the keyboard layout information from X?
Maybe somebody w/ better knowledge of X could direct us.
