Yes [yeah, I looked at the parameters in bash of ibus setup or ibus engine,
etc. (Anyhoo, I tried ibus-setup to get the preference window of ibus to
show up. I remembered this from my previous bug report.)

My problem is not w/ en_US vs Dvorak, so so far this issue does not affect
me, thankfully. I guess if I need to type in Chinese, my "shortcut" will be
Alt+F2 "r". Let me know if there are other testing things to do.
