  Keyboard switcher (or layout toggle hotkey) doesn't work

Bug description:
  I originally asked for help with the issue here:

  I'm on 21.04 but it happens for someone on 21.10 too.
  I'm on budgie-desktop 10.5.2.

  I’m trying to toggle between English (US) and Thai keyboard layouts. I
  have both set up in the “Region & Language” options in the settings,
  and I set “Super+Space” to toggle between them, and I have it set to
  be the same for all windows.

  The layout indicator applet correctly shows the layout changing
  between “US” and “TH”, but it hasn’t actually done anything - I’m
  still typing in English regardless.

  However, if I go into the options and manually re-order the languages
  (dragging Thai to be above English US), I’m typing in Thai as expected
  - so the Thai language definitely works.

  Everything starts working fine (with the layout indicator and the
  hotkey) once you've visited the Region & Language settings and re-
  ordered them from there first. It will be broken again after logging

  Note, if you try to replicate this by adding a new keyboard layout it
  will work the first time. You have to log out and in again to see it
  not working any more.
