ibus system tray icon under gnome3


i am using gnome3 with tumbleweed on my laptop, but there is a problem with ibus input: the system tray icon doesn’t show up at all, neither does the character selection bar (when typing in chinese). these both work perfectly under fedora 15 and ubuntu 11.04 (both with gnome3 and gnome-shell installed), so i’m guessing it should be an opensuse issue.

can somebody please help me to resolve this problem?

thank you!
