[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#638898: xfce4-xkb-plugin: Second keyboard layout removed after a while, have to keep resetting it

Package: xfce4-xkb-plugin
Severity: grave
Tags: upstream
Justification: renders package unusable

I have the American keyboard laytout as my default layout, and I also
use the French layout as well. Often times my keyboard shortcut to
switch between the two layouts no longer works. When I check to see what
happened in the xfce4-xkb-plugin settings it either shows that only the
American keyboard layout is there or the keyboard shortcut is no longer
selected, or both. I have been unable to figure out exactly what causes
this, but so far it doesn't seem to be anything specific, just after
some time passes. Sometimes it is after I restart, sometimes it is just
after a certain amount of time has passed. I have to readd the French
layout everyday and it is becoming extremely tedious, as I use it very
often. Please get this fixed ASAP. Thank you very much.
