Package: ibus
Version: 1.4.0-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I have used ibus for a while to do Japanese input.  I currently have installed ibus, ibus-gtk, ibus-gtk3, ibus-qt4, and dependencies of these.  

Until late last week, Japanese input worked as expected.  I updated to the most recent version if ibus, 1.4.0-2, and I believe this broke something in ibus-gtk or ibus-gtk3.  I've tried several things, including recreating ibus config files, but I cannot get ibus to work for many of my applications.

It works fine for LibreOffice and choqok.  However, it doesn't work for Terminal, Firefox, Gwaei, Claws-mail, or Bluefish (these are the only apps I've tested).  For these applications, I start the application (when ibus is already running), and when I click on the ibus icon in the taskbar, it shows only "No input window."

I speculate that there's something strange in 1.4.0-2 that is causing a problem somehow.
