This is the same behavior I saw. When I had the issue with accents, I started 
ibus, and it fixed it, then I shut down ibus, and the Qt applications that had 
the issue before, and then worked, stopped responding to input, and newly 
launched applications worked but had the issue.

So something tells Qt applications to start using ibus when it is launched, 
but they never switch away when it quits.
