Screenshot of the issue
Description of problem:
Occasionally after you suspend, then resume your laptop and proceed to type in your user password (screenshot attached) you have your password entered in the wrong keyboard layout, for example the layout indicator says "en1", which stands for English (Colemak), but symbols being entered correspond to keys maybe from Russian, Ukrainian or English (QWERTY) layouts (I have those four in my system).
The layout used instead of the displayed one seems to be random and is different each time. This have been happening at random since I upgraded to F22.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Up to date in Fedora 22.
Occasionally, almost always after suspension, but never after mere screen lock.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend your laptop, close lid
2. Wake up, proceed to enter you password
3. Try to key it in
The password is not accepted, using "Show Text" option and keying it in again reveals that it was entered in the wrong layout.
Correct password input.
I forgot to add that switching layouts around a few times "fixes" the issue.
