xorg.conf configuration bug

Section "InputDevice"
    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "us,ro(academic),ru"
    Option         "XkbOptions" "grp:caps_toggle"
Help me please to solve a bug with my keyboard layouts. The idea is that when I press caps lock for the first time, it switches the language to Romanian. But when I press it for the second time, it doesn't switch to Russian, but instead it works as caps lock. On Google I couldn't find any ways to solve this thing, the single thing I could find are such kind of tutorials, but they didn't really help a thing:
In the beginning of the thread, I have included my xorg.conf. Thank you for your help

Not that I really know...but:
I have never seen a valid layout code like "ro(academic)".
"ro" and "ro_microsoft" are the only ones I can spot right now.

Maybe you could switch "ro" and "ru" to see if you can toggle to the third.

no more ideas - no more experience!

jomen, thanks!
I changed the layout with ro(winkeys), and it worked. I thought initially that it's a bug with the russian layout, because it couldn't switch to russian. Well, anyway, problem solved
