Description

I just played around a little bit with some keyboard bugs in the greeter when this problem appeared:

- I select an Afghani keyboard (written RTL)
- I try to set an admin password but then I realize that I can't type in Afghani
- I go back to the keyboard and language options and select German everywhere
- I reopen the additional options screen and want to type an admin password but my keyboard layout is still RTL and I can't see if I'm typing in German or in Afghani now

I went back again to the main window and rechose the German layout, and then after two times the additional options screen adjusted and let me type LTR.

I confirm some weird behaviors in the keyboard layout changes in Tails Greeter.

Sometimes I can get the password field to (apparently) change to the new keyboard layout by pressing "Tab" to switch between the first and the second password field.

Alan hasn't touched this ticket since it was created over 1 year ago and I think that we should unblock it.

Yes, let's make it clear that this one is up for grabs, and could be tackled by any FT member: there's no particular reason why we need to block on Alan here.
