I'm using 12.04. The ibus daemon is started with -x -d. Originally i can switch between full size punctuation such as ,。︰ etc and half size (, . : ) using Shift+space

After updating yesterday this fails. Shift+space still allows me to switch between full-size and half-size for english characters like this 1, but no longer works for all punctuation `~!@#$%,.<>//?:"{}[][''-=_+<>

I can still type these characters using complicated stroke combination (e.g. zxad in cangjie for) but I cannot type it directly using shift+space

how to fix this?

The following are the updates i installed yesterday, not sure whether they are related:
