No-no, Kimpanel 4.8 works great.
Here is the screenshot: http://twitpic.com/acc0cs

How to install:
1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ikuya-fruitsbasket/kimpanel
2. sudo apt-get update
3. sudo apt-get install plasma-widget-kimpanel plasma-widget-kimpanel-backend-ibus
4. logout and login
5. add "Input Method" widget.
6. turn Ibus on

Hope this helps,
