Monday, June 01, 2009 1:32 PMI can confirm that something similar is happening on both of my installs - I only have Slovenian keyboard layout installed, but applications will randomly switch to US English layout (this happens with several applications).

As you may be aware, Windows uses the key combination Alt+Shift to change the active input language. Google Chrome doesn't invoke this key combination, does it?
As far as I know, automatically changing the input language (e.g. in a text entry box) isn't part of any approved web platform.

And the switch happens without pressing Alt+Shift.
