I have a similar problem within KDE 4.14: After starting KDE (with
startx method from an alpha console, i.e. not with xdm) the keyboard always
is set to 'us' (what is not what I want). I can use the dialog 
'Keyboard - KDE Control Module', make a dummy change there, revoke the
dummy change and say Apply to switch it to 'de' (German) and all is fine
for the current session. But after terminating KDE and restart it comes
up first as 'de' in the panel, but during the KDE jingle magically it switches again
to 'us'.

What is causing this switch on KDE boot?
