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

Dear Maintainer,
I frequently would like to switch keyboard layouts, and the xfce4-xkb-plugin would perfectly fit my needs, if it worked. 
But after some random time - about some minutes - the configuration is always resetted to only US layout. 
On the net, I have read something about a conflict between xkb's own config and the main config used for the Applications->Settings->Keyboard 
tool in xfce4.
I do not know if the bug is fixed in the testing release. I tried installing the package from the testing release, but that wouldnt work 
because of too many conficts with the stable distribution.
This is the single most annoying bug in xfce4, so if it was fixed in testing, I would very much appreciate an update of the current stable 
Best Regards
D. Rothe
