Glad to hear that.
We may try to change the default to IBus for the next release:
This is going to require quite a bit of testing to validate the change,
your feedback helps.
Do you have an ibus-daemon running?
Does it belong to another session perhaps?
If that's the case, terminating the other session may kill the
ibus-daemon and that may crash eclipse in your xpra session.. or just
break keyboard input.
