This regression seems to be explicitly caused by code in

  (_"Fallback input methods.
Value must be comma separated fallback input method names.
When you type a key that is not handled by the currently activated intup method,
fallback input methods (in the order specified in this variable) try
to handle that key, and the first one that can handle the key is activated
For instance, as the default value of this variable is \"lsymbol, unicode\",
when you type \"/...\" while you are activating an input method
that doesn't handle that key sequence, \"lsymbol\" input method is activated
and \"…\" (U+2026: HORIZONTAL ELLIPSIS) is inserted.")
  "lsymbol, unicode"))

Please reverse this change, and restore the behaviour of earlier
versions: only enable input methods explicitly requested by the user.
