1. Launch keyboard and make sure it has multiple layouts (languages) enabled.
2. Press the globe key to switch to the next layout.

   Result: the homescreen would be seen for a short time and then the previous keyboard layout is shown first then the keyboard layout we want.

   Switching correctly without flicker.

This is similar to Bug 958035 and the root cause might be the same, but I'll just file it for tracking.

I can't reproduce this on 2.1, might be already fixed by bug 1022475. qawanted to verify.

I'm unable to reproduce this issue on Flame 2.1 master, Buri 2.0, Flame 1.4, and Buri 1.3.

Observed on 2.1 and 2.0: I don't see a globe icon (described in original STR) for changing keyboard languages, and when changing keyboard languages I don't see any abnormal UI. Key layouts are promptly changed. Tested in Messages app.

Observed on 1.4 and 1.3: Globe icon is present in keyboard, but I don't see anything unusual when pressing on it multiple times. Key layouts are promptly changed. Tested in Messages app.
