Description of problem:
Installed latest update for xfce4 keyboard switch applet.
Moved it to the bar with current keyboard set to Czech, applet immediately crashed. After manually chaning keyboard to en (US), the applet loads, but crashes with keyboard change.
By the way, the update didn't help with the problem of keyboard settings going away when new keyboard is (un)plugged.
Version-Release number of selected component:
cmdline: /usr/libexec/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-xkb-plugin '' 2 25362151 xkb-plugin 'Keyboard Layouts' 'Keyboard layouts setup and switch plugin' ''

As a workaround, you can set your layout to "cz(qwerty)" instead of "cz_qwerty".
