I see, may be ibus is hardly bound to Gnome may be why this issue is
occuring? I'm not sure I'm just doing guessing job.

Just wondering if ibus-setup is part of ibus source package. I'll be

checked patches and it looks like its taken from Fedora, which is
justified by your above statement package being taken from Fedora)
