I rebooted the full system, but that did not help:  After logging in
again, the keyboard doesn't work.  Something is not starting
automatically the way it should.

Looking at im-launch, I can't find anything there that would start
ibus-daemon -- but then, there's lots of stuff calling each other, I may
easily be missing it.  This just means right now, I don't know where ti
start debugging.
