I have to restart my intellij every like 20 minutes whenever I hit multiple times ctrl+tab. It looks like clicking this multiple time on my ubuntu 13.10 + intellij 13.01 makes my intellij stuck. on intellij 12 same OS everything is just fine. anyway to work around this?

After using 'ibus-daemon -rd' only English works in IDEA and other languages stops working (for my case Persian) –  Mohsen Kashi Nov 5 '14 at 7:47
@MohsenKashi Yes, you should run setxkbmap after that to set languages correctly. –  Dmitry Ginzburg 14 hours ago
