Arch Linux
IBus version: 1.3.1
Input method name and version: Russian-kbd (m17n)
Python version: 2.6.5-2
dbus version: 1.2.24-1
dbus-python version: 0.83.1-1
gtk version (if bug is about gtk applications): 1.2.10-10

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Dvorak is set as system default layout. Install ibus-m17n (from AUR)
2. Add Russian-kbd in preferences>input method
3. select Russian-kbd for current input field from the notification icon 

Expected: typing 'qwerty' will produce 'йцукен'
Actuality: typing 'qwerty' produces 'эбюзна'

Please provide any additional information below.

This result shows that the Russian letters are assigned to the locations of 
their respective letters on the US-International layout. As these latin 
letters are in unexpected dvorak locations, the correct russian-kbd layout 
is not produced. For example, you can see in the above examples that the 
russian 'н' is one key left of where it should be. That's because the 
Dvorak layout places the 'y' key one key to the left of where US-Intl 
places it. Dvorak is not the only non-standard layout of latin letters and 
I imagine the same result would be felt with any of them as default.
