The following commands fix the MATE live CD session:

$ fcitx

I.e. Martin if you want, you can add those 2 packages in the seeds, and keep the --no-install-recommends to avoid installing the whole fcitx stack.
And of course it's possible to completely remove fcitx from the seeds.

Btw I was also able to reproduce it in Lubuntu, after taking care to have only fcitx-bin installed.
