Now I am clear what is your problem.

We may be hitting GNOME 2 to GNOME 3 difference...

Since GNOME3 do not use ibus-setup to set up configuration, I did not
notice.  But this transition timing of GNOME 3.8 seems to coinside with
the problem for ibus-setup.  I do not know is this is related or not.

Let me investigate more.
