  gnome-language-selector crashes when trying to drag English to the top

Status in language-selector package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  CID: 201409-15485

  I have this 16.04 system configured in Traditional Chinese (Taiwan),
  but when I was trying to drag "English (United States)" back to the
  top, the language selector will crash.

  1. Boot and make sure the system using Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)
  2. Open Language Settings
  3. Try to change the order by dragging English (United States) to the top.
