The release of ibus 1.5.28 came with a bug. In certain games and apps, used in x11/xwayland a pressed key wont seen as released if the key isnt pressed anymore, resulting in a sticky-keys-like experience. This is already fixed in the current git head. I'm also testing this since a few days without regression so far.

Additional info:
* Bugreport:
* Commit fix:
* How was this tested: Running normal GNOME desktop with some gaming for a few days. Including wayland, x11, different input methods/switching.
* Is it a standalone commit? I don't know. Sadly no answer in the bugreport but it looks like it can be used as such.
* PKGBUILD that was used for testing is attached

Steps to reproduce:
1. Upgrade to ibus 1.5.28
2. Start a known bad application (Guild Wars, Lemming Ball Z, Trackmania Nations Forever)
3. Use keyboard to control
4. Play for some time
   PKGBUILD (2.2 KiB)
This task depends upon
