  Budgie 21.10: Selected Keyboard Layout not Applied after reboot

Status in budgie-desktop package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have US physical keyboard. 
  In the "settings" application I have selected the keyboard layout 
  "English (intl. with AltGr dead keys)". 
  As expected, I can create, for example an "ä" by typing AltGr+q or Ü by typing AltGr+Shift+y. 
  Initially all this works as expected. 
  However, after reboot, the special characters do not appear when I press the altGr combinations. 
  example; "AltGr+q" produces just "q". 
  I checked settings application and even tried "dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration" in terminal, but with no success.
  Only workaround is this: 
  1) go to the settings application
  2) in the the settings application, add a second keyboard layout (if not already there)
  3) make the other layout the current layout (move up)
  4) switch back to the desired layout (US international layout in my case), means I move that one up again
  Then it works again until next reboot
  Somehow the settings are ignored until I touch them once in the settings editor...
  The same happens with other layout, for example "English (US,intl. with dead keys)"
  This is Ubuntu Budgie 21.10 (impish)
  maybe I configured something, or it is a bug, i don't know.
