Layout switching is broken

My settings, if it helps in any way
Description of problem:
Starting with version 3.8.3 of gnome-settings-daemon, I can't switch layouts anymore. I've set up switching by Alt+Shift in GNOME System Settings (since there's no such option in Cinnamon Control Center), and it doesn't work now. Nothing happens when I press the combination. There's an interesting exception, though: switching works in GDM and GNOME Screensaver. It also works when I switch by mouse in system tray.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Got broken by this update:
Worked fine before this update. There was a delay, but it was better than nothing.
Always. I tried clearing settings, it doesn't help.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Cinnamon.
2. Set two different layouts in GNOME Control Center (Region and Language)
3. Set Alt+Shift as a switching combination (Modifiers-only switch to next source).
Sorry for my English.
This was removed from gnome-settings-daemon-3.8.3
I have submitted a cinnamon (cinnamon-1.9.1-14.fc19) build to return this function.
cinnamon-1.9.1-15.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.

Update it with:

as soon as you are able to.

update cinnamon to ver 1.9.1-15.fc19 and then 1.9.1-16.fc19. "Still dead". May be i have to do something else?
update 1.9.1-15.fc19 - same result, layout doesn't switching. Please, fix it!
sorry, i mean 1.9.1-17.fc19
Just tried on a clean install - the bug is still not fixed in 1.9.1-19.fc19 build. Reopening.

but it doesn't! nice way to close bugs, just say "it works for me". Nice. Are you really developer?
If you wish to try cinnamon next
This is really a gnome-settings-daemon issue not cinnamon, the gnome devs (stupid wankers) shouldn't have remove a feature from a stable release (fucking morons).
Now cinnamon-settings-daemon is in the repo I have no intention of fixing their fuck ups.
Sorry if my language offends.

Don't blame me for gnomes mistakes

Ok post any errors found in
related to input switching, if there's nothing there try debugging gnome-settings-daemon.
to debug run (yes you do need to kill twice as once isn't enough)
Try to stop settings daemon and cinnamon crashes ("Something went wrong" and logout button).
There is probably some conflict in configuration. If the alt+shift does not work for you try:
# gnome-control-center keyboard
Shortcuts -> Typing -> Modifiers-only... -> Disabled
and now we disabled keyboard layout switching. How it can help? It doesn't work anyway, so why disable? :)
Reassigned to gnome-settings-daemon as they removed the code from a stable release.
Wow, some classy comments here. I love you too!
gnome-settings-daemon is not random-project-settings-daemon, feel free to re-open if there's any problem under GNOME.
OMG. "screw you guys i'm going home" (c)
