Keyboard layout changes on applying updates!

Hi People,

The problem is solved by something I should have figured much earlier. I 
removed all the layouts that I had configured, except the one which 
works for me. Now, the system has no option to switch the layout to. 
Hence, it continues to stay in the same layout even after upgrades.

Thanks anyways,
