I got the exact same problem as Gulfstream today. After a dist-upgrade
of my debian testing system, fcitx does not start automatically any
more. Output of fcitx-diagnosis is the same as gulfstream pasted.

I fixed this accidentally when trying around. I deleted
~/.config/fcitx. Then I rebooted several times but it does not help.
Then I tried to login with a gnome-classic session. Fcitx started and
it worked fine. Then I log out and re-login a gnome session (gnome
shell). This time fcitx started and worked. I tried reboot the box and
login to gnome shell, fcitx started and worked. 

Hope this helps!

Best Regards,
