Keyboard layout changes after Authenication failure/cancel

After changing the keyboard layout and clicking apply, it prompts with authentication required. even when you cancel or fail to put in your password in, it keeps the new layout that you had selected. This appears to happen for all layouts, me specifically changing form "English (Canada)" to "French (Canada, Dvorak)".

The authorization is not for changing the keyboard but to write the change to configuration files located in /etc.

So after reboot your keyboard will be restored to the settings defined in configuration.
