Package: gnome-settings-daemon
Version: 3.6.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I upgraded to gnome-shell 3.6 in experimental attempting to get past a major
random lockup problem.  In the process I updated gnome-settings-daemon to 3.6
as well.

After setting the x-session-manager alternative to gnome-session-fallback, I
lost my setting mapping caps-lock to be another control key.  If I open
gnome-settings-daemon and do the customization, nothing happens.

In .xsession-errors, I saw that it was missing libibus-1.0.so.5.  Upgrading
libibus-1.0 to the 1.4.99 version in experimental allowed the changes to be

Can you update the dependency to require the latest libibus?
