Bug Description

Note that ubuntu-desktop depends on ibus-gtk3 already.

Looking at /usr/share/im-config/data/21-ibus.rc
GTK_IM_MODULE is only set to ibus if both gtk-2.0 and gtk-3.0 ibus modules are present. Otherwise it's set to xim.

If GTK_IM_MODULE=xim and ibus is running, then various bugs happen like LP: #1374721 and LP: #1375742.

Installing ibus-gtk makes those problems go away.

It's better to be backported to utopic as well, but I'm not sure if ubuntu-meta can be SRUed.

@nobuto, I think seeding ibus-gtk3 would only make sense for trusty, because that change only become effective when new images are generated.
