I don't use that feature and can't say why it's not sticking when you 
switch keyboards, but I do have one suggestion:  There is a hotkey 
configuration for it, that you can use to turn it on and off, so you 
/shouldn't/ have to go into kde settings to change it, just remember the 
hotkey to toggle it, and do that instead.  Since you're having to do it 
repeatedly, that should save you at least /some/ trouble.
