I actually do this. I lose the ability to use fcitx in certain programs
in the middle of a session, at random points. Like I work for, say, an
hour, and suddenly, the ability to use fcitx with certain (console)
programs goes away in the middle of said session.

I have found a workaround, though: Often, I regain the ability to use
fcitx by twiddling the input method settings of the "surrounding"
terminal program.

This is still unsatisfactory, but no longer a show-stopper.

FWIW, when I decide to use fcitx, I run this command before firing up my
X session after setting my environment variables properly (although as
part of a script):

$ im-config -n fcitx

Kind regards,
