SUMMARY
When having multiple layout, shortcuts are mapped to the layout that's at the top of the layout list in system settings, instead of to the currently active lay out.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Go to system settings -> input devices -> keyboards -> layouts
2. Have both Colemak and qwerty in the layout list
3. Move qwerty to the top of the list
4. Activate Colemak
5. Use a shortcut with a key that's on a different place on Colemak than on qwerty (i.e ctrl+alt+t to open Konsole)



OBSERVED RESULT
The shortcut action isn't performed. Pressing the key on the top layout does perform the action (so ctrl+alt+g to open Konsole, since the g is on the position where in qwerty is)


EXPECTED RESULT
Shortcuts are mapped to the currently selected layout.
