Ok, to answer my own question, just tried with standard Ubuntu 13.10, and
after installing ibus-mozc and Japanese support, it worked as it should,
though it did require a reboot.  As Linux seems to be more Windows/OSX like
to me with each iteration, that makes sense.

Those two minor aggravations are still there.  So, it seems as if Lubuntu
and, from Lyle's experience, Kubuntu, have issues.  I might try XUbuntu
tomorrow out of curiosity.
