Umm. I can give more details on the VM I see this happen the most. I'm
running CentOS 6.6 using JWM window manager and have two scripts that I
run to switch keyboard layouts.

Here is one such script.


setxkbmap -model pc104 -layout us -variant dvorak

How did you change the keyboard layout under Ubuntu? Via the Ubuntu
keyboard applet or setxkbmap or xmodmap etc?

I'll switch my scripts to using xmodmap instead and see if that makes
any difference. JWM doesn't run taskbar/panel applets (eg: networking,
keyboard layout etc), so I have to do it manually via other X11 utilities.
