I have two keyboard layouts, but keyboard layout indicator is only visible on login screen. After I login to system, I could not see it anymore!

My problem is almost the same as following: Question #195194

But, I have the latest release of Gnome Shell, from official Gnome team repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3

And other packages have the latest versions as well,
so I doubt that this error happens because of a bug.

Already tried the instructions mentioned in this thread:
Gnome3 keyboard layout icon disappeared

Especially the gnome-tweak-tool. Still unable to see keyboard layout indicator.

Please tell me, how to fix this error?

After the bug is solved, still you have to find how to have the keyboard indicator in gnome... especially if you upgrade to 13.04.
