Actually I don't understand the case (1). Probably it would be good to point
out the actual code in gnumeric. But I think the problem in the first ogv is
already fixed.

Hmm.., curious.
In my env, The problem in your second ogv is fixed in the yesterday's RPM.
You also need to restart gnumeric after ibus-gtk2 is installed.

% strace gnumeric a.gnumeric 2>&1 | grep im-ibus
open("/usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodules/im-ibus.so", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = 8

The default preedit_visible is false. I'm interested in when preedit_visible is
changed. Maybe someone calls 'show-preedit-text' signal.

AFAIK, any documents does not say "preedit-changed" signal should not be sent
in case that just preedit_visible is changed for zero length. I mind another
regression if "preedit-changed" is sent only for non-zero length.
If you could see the ibus codes, the "preedit-changed" signal is called in many
I'd think if the preedit_visible only could resolve your problem to minimize
the changes.
If the length would be also checked, I think other parts should check the
length besides the problem part.
You could get the Fedora SRPM with 'yumdownloader --source ibus' and rpmbuild
could build the Fedora RPMs.
