Changed keyboard settings

In Windows 7 (and possibly Vista) the keyboard layout is sometimes changed back to some sort of default.

The problem shows itself like this – I use the 1337 keyboard layout in Visual Studio.  Then without warning the keyboard layout changes to US layout; a layout I don’t even have installed.  The 1337 layout is based on US though so somehow it shines through.

To get back to 1337 I choose “Open the language bar” in the systray context menu.  The language bar then pops up in another place (top of screen for me) and I can then choose keyboard layout.

The problem will reappear more times until I reboot.

    If I´m not misstaken, this happends when you press Alt + Shift. You can toggle back by pressing Alt + Shift again.

      Alt-shift only switches between installed languages. This bug changes to the US layout; without me pressing alt-shift. I don’t have US layout, only Swedish and 1337 keyboard layouts.
