I have done the merge here:
https://code.edge.launchpad.net/~arnegoetje/ubuntu/maverick/ibus/merge-from-sid/+merge/31945

Please review and test if it works. Especially test the appindicator and
show_menuitems patches, since I just adjusted the line numbers so that
they apply to the code again. As far as I can see the upstream code has
not changed in this regard, but I'm not an expert on gtk stuff.

And please modify the patches, so that they can be sent upstream, as in
my comment on the bug report
https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ibus/+bug/611224

Cheers
Arne
