Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-screensaver (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Wishlist
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed


Description:
I use Ubuntu on a computer with a QWERTY keyboard. Sometime I change the keyboard setting to QWERTZ to write in a non-english language. Unfortunately my password contains a Y. Thus I run into trouble when I try to unlock my screen after a coffee break because I don't know if it is configured to QWERTZ or QWERTY. Thus a notification about the selected keyboard layout in the window where I have to enter my password would be usefull.
It seems not usefull to show these notification to people who don't change their default keyboard layout. Thus it should show up only if the keyboard is configured to a non default layout or if the user has several keyboard layouts available.
