Dear developers, it after all an easy bug, but it has strongly bothered.

Irritates that dialogue inherits keyboard layout from the active application. At me, all my passwords stored in English, language by default is English. But the gksu layout very often automaticaly turns to Russian.

In dialogue there is no indicator of keyboard layout and to understand that I incorrectly enter the password it is impossible.

It very much enrages!!! Please, fix it.

Typeing your password on the wrong layout is something quite common for people using multiple keyboard layouts, and I think that such a notification, akin to the one about Caps Lock, would not be out of place.
