  layout switch is delayed

Status in console-setup package in Ubuntu:
Status in gconf package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have two layouts configured En and Ru with Ctrl-Shift as layout
  switch combo.

  When I start typing in wrong layout I notice it, hit Ctrl-Shift and type again, but more often than not it is wrong layout again.
  I repeat the action, but there is no luck. On the third attemt it usually either works OR the first letter is still in wrong layout, but the second is in correct one - i.e. layout switches as I type.

  The explanation for this is that layout switch takes very unreasonable
  time - much longer than it is needed to move your fingers from  one
  key to the other. Each time I encounter the error I retry slower so on
  the third attempt it is slow enough to actually recognize that layout
  switch is happening, but with a delay.

  This is extremely annoying and unacceptable. If someone knows how to
  work around it - please post your suggestions here. It would be nice
  to have a solution for 3+ layouts setup as well.
