Ever since i configured IBus in my Ubuntu 11.04 with both the Portuguese PT and the Japanese inputs, i lost the ability to correctly write in Portuguese, since the accents don't get typed properly. For example, if i try to write "á" it always types "´a". I tried with other programs, including various text editors, and i only have this problem with skype in the chat windows.
Does anyone have any idea how to solve this?
Apparently it's only a skype problem working with IBus since i haven't got this problem with any other program in Ubuntu so far, and it was working well before i set it to work with the Japanese input, that by the way, is working just fine.

I am having the same problem. I running Arch Linux with skype 18.104.22.168-2. I keyboard switch between Greek and English and the problem only occurs in Skype.
Edit: It appears to be a bug within QT applications.
Not sure if it will work on Debian based distros, but this works fine in Fedora 18:
yum install ibus-qt.i686
Then, in a terminal:

I'm having the same issue on manjaro 3.8.13-1-MANJARO skype 22.214.171.124 in latam spanish. When typing ´a I get ´a instead of the expected á
