xorg.conf does not control keyboard layout


I've got the following section in xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Generic Keyboard"
    Driver         "kbd"
    Option         "CoreKeyboard"
    Option         "XkbRules" "xorg"
    Option         "XkbModel" "pc105"
    Option         "XkbLayout" "gb, us"
    Option         "XkbOptions" "grp:ctrl_shift_toggle"
    Option         "XkbVariant" ",winkeys"
EndSection
but I cannot switch between layouts with ctrl+shift any idea why it can be?

Change the above, to:
Code:
Option         "XkbLayout" "gb+us"
to see if it works.
