Dropdown RHEL 7.3
Description of problem:
Unable to have 'de' as the first preference as keyboard layout on gdm login screen. Whenever we set the keyboard layouts from the Settings or using localectl it does gets set but after reboot or relogin it shoes 'en' as the first preference selected on gdm login screen.
Attached are the two screen shots from RHEL 7.3 and RHEL 7.4 machine.
In RHEL 7.3 machine, we are able to have this setup and keyboard layouts.
In RHEL 7.4 machine we do see 'de' as the first preference, 'en' as the second in the drop down list but default 'en' will always be selected.
Here manually we need to always change the keyboard layout from the 'de' to 'en'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Set the keyboard layouts either using Region & Language or localectl utility.
Keeping 'de' as the first option in Region & Language.
'en' is always coming as the first and selected preference for keyboard layout on gdm login screen.
As per the priorities set we should be able to get other set keyboard layouts as well as the first priority in gdm login screen.

Ray, this looks like it should be yours, maybe ? More of a gdm than gnome-shell issue
Not able to reproduce on 7.6
