As for bug #872701, I clicked-typed my password in as if I were shown a Azerty layout (the default French keyboard layout), but it still didn't work.
I have indeed version 3.4.2-0ubuntu0.3 of libgtk-3-0.
Onboard does show the correct Bépo layout.
I barely have other problems with my keyboard layout (except in certain closed-source video games).

I just made an additional test: in fact Onboard does not work at all here.
It does show the right layout, but when I click "bépo", I get "qwer". This is not only for the lock-screen but everywhere. I changed the bug title accordingly.

** Summary changed:

- Entering password with Onboard when screen is locked does not work
+ Onboard does not respect my keyboard layout

** Description changed:

  I have installed Onboard on a non-touch laptop, so when I use it, I click the virtual keyboard with my mouse. In particular, Onboard shows up when I try to enter my password when my screen is locked (Ctrl+Alt+L or wait 10 minutes).
  This does not work. I am able to enter my password correctly by typing my physical keyboard but not by clicking on Onboard.
- Notice the following : my keyboard layout is Bépo (French Dvorak-method
- layout) and my password contains special characters as "." or "é".
+ Notice the following : my keyboard layout is Bépo (French Dvorak-method layout). Therefore I tested Onboard on any other text field (Firefox for example) and it prints Qwerty type characters instead of Bépoè^.
