Thank you for your comments.

Editing the labels is possible but there seems to be a bug in the
configuration module. As soon as one completely clears the label in an
attempt to edit it, the label resets to some default value. As a result,
editing the label only works if the user makes sure that the label field
is never completely empty during editing. Additionally, it seems
impossible to set an empty label (in order to show only the flag but no
letters in the taskbar indicator).

Also, when adding a fresh "US English" layout, the label is set to "us".
Next, selecting a different layout variant doesn't change the label to
match, only after clearing the label field the matching label (like
"usd" for dvorak variant or "usm" for mac) shows up.

Can you confirm the above on your system?
Is this causing the symptoms you described or do you experience other problems with the keyboard layout settings? If so, please include detailed instruction how to reproduce the problem. Be sure to also mention both (k)ubuntu and kde versions used.

Setting package to kdebase-bin (kdebase) since it provides /usr/lib/kde3/kcm_keyboard.la
