Default Ibus eating cntl-space key

In Emacs, the cntl-space key is important and
I use it frequently. Because it conflicts with
the use of cntl-space in Ibus to toggle Ibus
on/off, I remapped alt-space to that function in
Ibus. This worked well in Fedora-11 for several
years and in Fedora-15 after I first installed it.
It stopped working after an Ibus update but another
Ibus update that arrived shortly after fixed it
again. After yet another Ibus update it is broken
again. :-(

Currently (ibus-1.3.99.20110714-11), if cntl-space is
assigned "Enable or Disable" in Ibus prefs, it works
as expected. However, typing cntl-space in Emacs is
not seen by Emacs (unsurprisingly -- I assume it was
intercepted by Ibus).

When I delete cntl-space in Ibus prefs and assign
alt-space instead, alt-space then toggles the IME
on/off as expected and cntl-space has no effect in
Ibus (also as expected). However, cntl-space still
has no effect in Emacs (unexpected!).

Terminating Ibus results in cntl-space working in
Emacs again.

Is there some secret setting I am missing? Should I
report a bug?

For closure, this was reported in
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=725494
and in there are instructions on how to fix temporarily
until a more permanent update is released.
