Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sorry, I do not know which component(s) are causing the issue, so I just chose something because it was required.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 7.6 (Maipo)
Linux bkrahmer.remote.csb 3.10.0-957.5.1.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Dec 19 10:46:58 EST 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Started with a fresh Lenovo machine with the standard RHEL image on it.  I did apply system updates the other day from the company repos.  The default keyboard layout was US.  I added German so I can enter umlaut characters easily.  If I select it using the mouse, or using the keyboard shortcut of super-space, nothing happens.  The semi-colon key stays, instead of turning to o-umlaut.  I double-checked the locale from the command-line, and it never changes.  

This problem does not appear on Ubuntu 16/17/18.

not sure if gnome-settings-daemon is the right component but definitely closer to the right one. Could you append logs from running journalctl -f in a terminal while switching keyboard layouts via super+space?

There is nothing output from that command (either as myself or as root) when switching layouts.
