ibus makes Ctrl+Space a global shortcut

Ibus since Fedora 16 started using Ctrl+Space as a global shortcut when ibus is enabled. My short investigation shows that this breaks at least the following in such environment:
- emacs (uses ctrl+space in a number of combinations)
- kate-part (virtuallly the whole KDE desktop+ kile, lyx and etc.).
And I'm pretty sure I haven't listed even half of the things breaking. Taking a well known application shortcut and making it a global one is a major and disruptive change.
As we can not come on agreement with ibus maintainer I'm raising the issue to Fesco to decide whether it's ok to break a huge number of applications in given environment. Note that ibus is required on gnome 3 and there is work on integrating it even deeper in the gnome stack.
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=756595 for the bug report. See https://live.gnome.org/ThreePointThree/Features/IBus for the ongoing gnome 3 integration.
