Fix for arbitrary change of keyboard layout.

Overview

SetKbd ... Does your Mac arbitrarily change the keyboard layout at startup so that it is different from the one you set in preferences? This is still an unresolved problem of OS X (since 10.0); it generally happens when one of your "Startup Items" does not support your language and so it forces the system to set the keyboard layout it prefers (but you may not). Sometimes you can solve the problem changing the launch order of your startup items, sometimes changing some of the application parameters (digging in the app package), sometimes you can't solve it at all. Moreover this problem often does not happen on every startup, but randomly. SetKbd is the solution. Add it as the last item of the Startup Items list, set its preferences and you're done: no more troubleshooting, digging, and reordering. The keyboard layout will be the one YOU set.

Great utility! Generally it works... but there is only one exception (on my PowerBook at last) - Microsoft IE for OS X. IE still sets the US keyboard as default - of course you can switch back to your previously selected one by pressing Command-Space sequence.

Does not work for me! MacOS 10.3.8, primary script is Russian, secondary - English. Delay set to max (10s) and I see indeed that Setkbd launches after the Finder, but the keyboard layout does not change. Compatibility problem?

But did you setup its preferences? It should work.
