FYI: I am mostly using unstable and stable now happily under GNOME3.

This usage of testing may be the reason for the difference experiences.
Up until recently, GNOME3 packages were causing problem and I know I
used to suffer even on unstable.

I thought gnome-settings-daemon etc. also moved to testing recently.
So situation should be OK.

Are you using "aptitude" or "apt-get upgrade"?  Please run "apt-get
dist-upgrade" to make sure the package consistency.

I know your feeling but your report is too vague for me to act since I
do not see the problem from my end.

unstable package migrated.

How you know this is ibus problem?  Unstable GNOME had funny hangs for a
while as I recall as a minor nuisance to me.

Hmmmm.... What do you mean by "make stop and quit the ibus,".  What
exactly did you do?  Remove package or disable some functionality?

I never experienced such....  anyway, can you explain which desktop are
you using with what set of ibus packages and also do you start with what
DM (gdm/kdm...) ...

Unless you identify your situation precisely, I have no way to analyze

I should say, it should work better :-)

So far, it is too vague for me to do anything...
