Did you solved that? I have similiar problems on earlier versions of 
Fedora too. They are caused by incorrect keyboard layout beeing 
displayed/used in the locking screen. If you have more keyboard layouts 
try to switch them few times. There is a bug about this problem - but has 
not many attention.
