Description of problem:
IBus can be activated on the search box at the Activities Overview though, the characters in the preedit can be deleted by Backspace. the key events seems not forwarding to IBus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.enter into the activities overview
2.activate ibus to start input in native language
3.type something in the search box
4.press backspace key to delete
no delete in preedit
should delete characters in preedit
reported to upstream: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/108
I can confirm that. The same happens for me in the "enter command" dialog which opens when typing Alt+F2.
Deleting characters typed already with backspace does *not* work.
Committing the preedit with Return does not work either.
