This bug was fixed in the package ibus - 1.5.17-3ubuntu3

ibus (1.5.17-3ubuntu3) bionic; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/ubuntu-conditional-chmod.patch: backport an upstream commit
    to make a call to chmod conditional, to avoid apparmor denials for confined
    apps (e.g. snaps) that use libibus (LP: #1761585)

ibus (1.5.17-3ubuntu2) bionic; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/ubuntu-unicode-keybinding.patch:
    - use a change proposed/rejected upstream to restore ctrl-shift-u,
      upstream consider it superseeded by the emoji selector but that has
      no keybinding in our ibus version and is not an exact replacement
      (lp: #1760308)

  Unicode input not working on Bionic with CTRL-SHIFT-U

  Fix Released

Bug description:
  I need to enter Unicode with Unicode escape codes and the Ubuntu
  prescribed way is to use CTRL-SHIFT-U and then enter some numbers to
  input.  This doesn't do anything in the Ubuntu Bionic beta.

  Potentially related the ALT-TAB window switching is delayed in
  recognizing the occurrence of the keys being pressed such that I have
  to hold ALT-TAB instead of quickly hitting both simultaneously.

  This is from a system that was upgraded from a previous Ubuntu version
  without any issues.

  Description:  Ubuntu Bionic Beaver (development branch)
  Release:      18.04

  The "Affects" package may not be accurate as I don't know what the
  cause application is for this.
