Keyboard layout plugin disappears after keyboard is plugged in XFCE4

Hello everybody,

I have the following small problem with the keyboard layout plugin, in Xfce on my laptop.

Everytime I connect the external keyboard, the plugin and its settings disappear from the Xfce panel and thunar gets executed.

I would like to have the keyboard switching plugin running all the time with fixed settings. I do no want it to respond to plugging or unplugging the keyboard.

Is there some way to fix this?

I have Thinkpad R51 with Debian Squeeze, Xfce 4.
