Description Fuminobu Takeyama 2019-10-22 10:51:40 UTC
After applying the patch to fix CVE-2019-14822 (#1150011), Qt application cannot connect to ibus-daemon.

Due to the race condition bug with GDBus, ibus client using libdbus (including Qt platform input context plugin, aka ibus-qt) cannot connect to ibus-daemon's D-Bus server.

This problem did not reproduce before applying the patch because the race condition happens restricting clients but the old insecure ibus-daemon does not check clients.

Workaround is restarting ibus-daemon repeatedly until the problem is fixed.

Ubuntu has already reverted the patch for CVE-2019-14822
