This bug was fixed in the package im-config - 0.29-1ubuntu16

im-config (0.29-1ubuntu16) yakkety; urgency=medium

  * debian/user/im-config.service: Reverse the order of "initctl set-env" and
    "dbus-update-activation-environment". $XMODIFIERS can contain an "=" (its
    value might be, for example, "@im=ibus"). upstart forwards "set-env -g"
    calls to D-Bus, but it constructs the parameters to the call incorrectly
    and splits on "=" characters in the value, discarding anything which
    follows. We can work around this bug by calling "initctl set-env -g"
    first, and then "dbus-update-activation-environment" to overwrite the
    buggy value. (LP: #1630090)
  * debian/user/im-config.service: Get rid of one eval -
    "dbus-update-activation-environment" will look up the variable in the
    environment if you don't specify a value.
