Description of problem:
My native keyboard interface is "Belgium", but I have "US" additionally available. The "Belgium" layout is my preferred layout for normal activities, I only need the "US" layout occasionally.

During login, after clicking on my username, gdm seems to setup a keyboard layout at random. Sometimes it selects "Belgium", sometimes "US". I can't find a pattern in it, although it seems (the incorrect) "US" is selected more often than (the correct) "Belgium".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot the system into gdm after having setup two keyboard layouts
2. Click on the user
3. Verify the chosen keyboard layout
Actual results:
The chosen keyboard layout seems to be selected at random

Expected results:
My preferred keyboard layout should be chosen.

Additional info:
This is a regression. The previous gdm from a couple of weeks ago did not show this behaviour.

If relevant, here is the smolt profile for this machine:

I just upgraded my laptop to F12 Beta.

This problem still persists.

Could this be the same bug as #530452?
Could you try installing gdm-2.28.1-6.fc12 or later from Koji, http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=235

(I'm not a GDM developer, I was just going through the bugs searching for a solution to what was bug 530452.)

Comment 3 info@kobaltwit.be 2009-10-25 13:10:51 UTC
After reading bug 530452, I'm pretty sure my bug is a duplicate. I'll mark it as such and follow up on bug 530452.
