Because of..

 . the limitation of current implementation on how gtk+
   switches immodule when the change is received. see

 . scim/scim-bridge is going to bring the necessary process
   up from immodule while immodule instance is alive unless
   those processes is running.

That issue should be gone when either of them is fixed..

WT> • QUESTION: When you switch between ibus and SCIM with imsettings, you need to restart the desktop application for it to work.  Is this expected?

No. actually even if scim icon is still on systray, you
should be able to use ibus on your applications after
changing. the above issue at least is irrelevant to this
