I can reproduce this

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2023-03-15 08:25:12 UTC
Proposing as an freeze exception I think this actually qualifies as a Blocker.

Comment 3 fujiwara 2023-03-17 08:03:20 UTC
I cannot reproduce your issue in the installed Fedora 38.

# rpm -qf /etc/fedora-release 

Comment 4 fujiwara 2023-03-17 09:15:43 UTC
Seems this problem is not reproduced when I build libibus.so by myself but can be with the koji libibus.so.
Maybe a debug info changes the timing.

Comment 5 fujiwara 2023-03-17 14:08:39 UTC
There are two issues in GNOME Wayland
One is the build optimization causes some emoji data is not initialized.
Another is IBus Emojier cannot get focus-in event and output the selected char.

The former issue is reported in https://github.com/ibus/ibus/issues/2476 and fixed in IBus upstream.

The later issue is a known gnome-shell regression and provided a patch in https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/-/issues/6518

I added a workaround for the later issue but it does not fix the issue completely.

A left issue is that Super-Period does not work with GTK4 applications in GNOME Xorg but it would be another issue and the different priority.
