I'm using archlinux with budgie desktop and gnome-screensaver version
This problem still persists. I can't switch languages in the unlock
screen. I have to power down my machine because I'm unable to enter my
password. Any help would be appreciated, feel free to ask for whatever
steps I need to provide to help with debugging this very annoying issue.

adding keyboard layouts no longer seems to update xkb correctly
Status in gnome-screensaver package in Ubuntu:
Status in gnome-screensaver source package in Saucy:
* Impact: layouts are missing from the unlock screen which might makes
difficult to unlock
* Test case:
Through gnome-control-center, add a few different XKB input sources
(e.g., US, French, German, Russian), then lock the screen.
The lock screen dialog keyboard switching indicator should cycle
through all of the XKB (non-IBus) input sources.
It only allows cycling through at most two XKB layouts, the currently
active one, and the US layout.
* Regression potential:
The changes affect the list from which gnome-screensaver allows
cycling, and may affect which layouts are available for unlocking the
I'm not sure if this is caused by gnome-control-center, or ibus 1.5,
but in saucy, adding or modifying the keyboard layouts doesn't seem to
properly update xkb any longer.
For example, I can have both French (Canada) and English (US)
configured, but xkl_config_rec_get_from_server() will only return 'ca'
and xkl_engine_get_num_groups() will return 1, instead of 2.
I believe this is also causing the keyboard layouts to not appear on
the login screen.
