For Qt4 there's QT4_IM_MODULE indeed, and you can configure the input method via 
qtconfig too. For Qt5 I haven't found anything. In the end I did rename ibus-
daemon and ibus-x11, and only then found there's a package called im-config where 
you can configure this. Annoyingly I didn't write down exactly where that was on 
by Ubuntu rig, and judging from the file date it was not the 
/etc/defaults/im_config file I thought I remembered it was :-/

The patch applies to 5.9.0 and with it I can follow the described recipe without 
losing keyboard input.
