Language Shortcuts do not work

I use both US and Korean IME keyboard inputs and need to switch between them regularly. I normally have US setup as "left alt + shift + 2" and Korean IME as "left alt + shift + 3". I do not like the 'toggle' shortcut, as I often accidentally toggle a two-key combo like "ctrl + shift" or "left alt + shift".

Well for some reason in Windows 7 the 'toggle' shortcuts work perfectly, but the direct shortcuts seem to only work in instances of explorer.exe... In any other program at all I can not switch to korean, although if I manually switch to korean I can switch back to US (and then am locked there, shortcut wise).

Anyone have any suggestions? It is pretty irritating and works fine in Windows XP.
