Thank you very much Gunnar, the latest PPA changes work as expected for me in gnome-flashback, i.e. ibus isn't running and I can type Greek just fine.
What you have in the PPA is a good compromise for 16.04, please keep it that way.

For the future, post 16.04, I'll try to raise the issue in Debian's im-config, so that there's no need to have an Ubuntu debdiff (or to minimize it).
I.e. I will ask that ibus isn't running in locales where it's not needed, because:
1) It's causing issues (some of them will be solved in time)
2) It's wasting 20 MB of non-shared RAM (echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches; free; killall ibus-daemon; echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches; free), which is an issue in multi-user systems like LTSP thin clients.
