Well, at least Fedora 5 - 9 in the described case allowed switching of the input
layout with one of the default shortcuts, but you still had to guess which
default shortcut to use. And now not only this old feature is broken, but even
new features are not working as advertised.

Er... So what? Can't get your point. I'm talking about the xorg gdm login
screen, fortunately the non-xorg console still has a great vanilla english (US)
input without any chances to switch to russian layout without manual messing
with extra configuration files.

And by the way, the graphical root gnome session has the English (US) default
layout.
