Thanks for sharing your experience. Interesting that a keyboard included in a "custom" [might we remind all] gapps package... But it just goes to show that we [myself at least] often trust software too quickly or look for bugs on less trusted apps when it's the very first installed one(s) that are problematic....

1 easy way would be to go in /system/app folder and disable that app [named something like: “blabla_android.inputmethod.latin.apk” - sorry I do not have G kb installed...]. And you'd do so by using a ROOT enabled file explorer and either delete it or rename the file extension of the file [useful since you'd keep it as backup] Example.: rename x.apk to x.apk.bak or x.apkwhatever.

Or be ready for factory reset...
Do I hear nandroid backup??

OK, since I always write long posts....
here's my suggestion of the day for you guys:
Android L keyboard [unofficial but still go read the app description].
A couple screenshots to save a few words (version number + things I like about it.
Seems like this KB got removed from the Play store - sorry about that.
Found it again for you guys:
