I haven't been following this thread but don't you mean "unity-settings-daemon"?

In which "System Settings" app do you set this? "Text Entry"? "Language"?

When you hit this again

- run "locale" and "localectl" to check whether their output
corresponds to your settings

- check that you still have the right settings in "System Settings"

- check that gconf/dconf has the right settings; I'm not too sure how
to go about this because I haven't used gsettings for a while but
perhaps run "gsettings list-schemas" and grep for [U|u]nity or for
[C|c]anonical and then if you see a schema (scheme?) that might set
the keyboard or the locale, you can list its keys and their values
recursively. I can't remember the gsettings command for this but it'll
be in "man gsettings".

to see whether there's a disconnect somewhere.
