Since the latest update to version, fcitx no longer sets the default keyboard/ input method. I have a German keyboard and thus my default IM in fcitx is "Keyboard - German". In XFCE4 my keyboard setting is "German" (no other keyboard besides that). My second IM in fcitx is "Sunpinyin". After login to XFCE4 on my desktop the default IM is an English QWERTY keyboard.

Besides that, fcitx works as expected, i.e. I can choose "Sunpinyin" and "Keyboard - German" and get the correct mapping of characters (e.g. I can type "öäüß" for German and "你好吗?" for Mandarin).

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install fcitx and xfce4
2. Set IM to non-English keyboard layout, e.g. to German.
This task depends upon

Update: After login to XFCE4 when I type in Firefox instead of the console, the font used by default is a Chinese font (for instance I get "。" instead of "."). The default IM by default is "German", but the keyboard layout is English and the font is that of "Sunpinyin".
