[PC-BSD Testing] IBus issue - PC-BSD 8.2-RC1 x86

Just found another ? icon in PC-BSD 8.2-RC1 x86; click on the IBus
icon in the taskbar should have shown an IBus icon and its relevant
options, whereas it instead gives a ? for the icon.

Also found a trivial but annoying bug for Chinese user in
"IBus-chewing" input method. When typing a word there should be a
small input window for the user to edit/choose the word he/she wants,
whereas as far as I tried the small window did not show up. I was
still able to type a word by REMEMBERING the keystrokes I have just
typed but no doubt this is quite tedious - imagine that your keystroke
does not show up in your screen until you type a complete word. Not
sure if this bug is specific to the OS/KDE or is on the input method's
side. Will also contact IBus's dev-group and see what they say. By the
way this "IBus-chewing" input method does not work at all in my
current PC-BSD 8.1 x86 system.
