Package: xfce4-xkb-plugin
Followup-For: Bug #638898


it is REALLY annoying and pretty much rendering this plugin unusable... 
having workaround is good but I wish it could be really fixed for the wheezy...
checked upstream git and I guess resolution boiled down to

    Remove configuration of keyboard layouts.
    Keyboard layouts are moved to xfce4-keyboard-settings.
    The management of layouts per application/window
    is still handled by this plugin.
    Compose key configuration is gone for now; might get reinstated
    in xfce4-keyboard-settings.
    This fixes bug 5476 (together with a corresponding commit
    to xfce4-settings).

unfortunately changes in xfce4-settings were not as atomic and there is a
series of related commits (if I got it right).

But I guess someone could consider this issue 'fixed-upstream'
