  keyboard layout applet breaks shortcuts

Status in “console-setup” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When I have two or more keyboard layouts, there is a keyboard icon in
  the tray, along with an indication of which layout is active. When I
  have only one layout, those icons disappear.

  When the icons are there, the keyboard layout does not affect
  shortcuts. I can use Dvorak or Russian and still do ctrl+c/v. When the
  icons are not there, I need to press ctrl+[key that maps to c/v under
  the active layout] to copy/paste. While this could be useful in
  certain cases, it is very inconvenient with languages that don't have
  c or v, like Russian.

  1) Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS (using gnome-fallback, in case it matters)
  2) I don't know which package is responsible.
  3) When I have only one layout (in System Tools -> System Settings -> Keyboard Layout -> Layouts), shortcuts should remain unchanged (i.e. the same as they would be in the US layout), no matter which the layout is.
  4) Shortcuts change according to the active layout.
