Some apps ignore alternative keyboard layout #1309

My apologies in advance if I'm filing this against the wrong project . . .

I switch between QWERTY and Dvorak layouts in the Cinnamon keyboard layout settings. When in Dvorak, everything works fine unless it's a Swing app. Swing apps will ignore this setting and always use QWERTY. So, I don't know if it's a bug in Swing or an issue with the way Cinnamon reports the key events to Swing.

I just noticed this is an issue with Opera 12.10 as well.

@nirvdrum - Hi, is this still valid? Can you check it in latest Cinnamon (2.2)?
