That feels vastly exaggerated. That aside...

I too have two keyboard layouts configured and this happens to me as
well, under GNOME/Xorg and afaics is simply me pressing by accident
Windows/Super + Space. This is the shortcut for switching the keyboard
I suspect it's the same for you.
You can reconfigure the shortcut in gnome-control-center.
Go to "Tastatur->Texteingabe->Zur nächsten Quelle wechseln"

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
