mintty randomly switches keyboard-layout

I notice quite often that my german keyboard-layout in mintty gets changed  
into an english one. Alt-F8 (Reset) does not bring back the german layout,  
so I can only exit and restart mintty. I think it mostly happens when  
doing Copy/Paste-operations using Ctrl-Ins/Shift-Ins but I'm not sure  
about this.

Is there a way to avoid this or to reset the layout back to german?

I'm using mintty 1.0.3 on cygwin 1.7.13.
