In Xfce, when I press Alt+Shift keyboard indicator switch between us and ru but the layout doesn't switch actually.

Xubuntu 14.04

I've tried: different keyboards (doesn't help).

This problem appeared after I remapped a certain key following this: How do I remap certain keys or devices?

Update. The problem affects KDE desktop environment too. In Unity everything is OK.
