I have a problem with switching layouts in Chromium. If I switch keyboard layout it changes successfully, but I can't still type Cyrillic (or other) symbols in Chromium. I found out that actually keyboard layout is changed in Chromium, because symbols like ?, and are on the different places (they are in placesion which they should be in the current layout), but I can't type letters from the current layout.

So for example I'm in English layout - I can type any letters etc. without any problems. Then I switch my layout to Russian (for example), after that I can't type any Cyrillic letters at all, I still can type only Latin letters.
