Package: ibus
Version: 1.5.1.is.1.4.2-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

My locale is set to en_AU.UTF-8. When I'm using the chinese input table, in
particular, ibus-table-cangjie-big, some characters are not recognized. For
example, from the cangjie-big.txt table, there is:

tanw    蘭     1000

but when i type "tanw" it is not recognized.

More examples are "iknf", "vfok", "damh".

But if I set my LANG to zh_TW.UTF-8, and those characters work.

Is this a bug or is this a setup problem?
