I can't help with the compose key problem, as unsetting XMODIFIERS does
work for me, but I found ibus eventually unusable in Emacs. I've
switched to fcitx for system input, which works okay, but it doesn't
work in Emacs either! The Emacs package manager has an input method
called chinese-pyim which I'm finding quite good -- it takes a bit to
train, but after that it's very nice to use. Or do as I'm trying to do,
and learn the Wubi input method...

Sorry, no actual solution to your problem, but some alternatives...
