Comment 1 Lawrence Lim 2006-02-03 11:22:19 UTC
I thought I narrowed down to scim-chewing as pinyin seems ok for me. Tagoh-san
noticed this happend in all locale for all IME. Hence, raising the serverity due
to the scope of impact. 

To get SCIM to work again, simply start a new gtk application has to start and
that will cause SCIM to start in the background.

Another interesting issue is that after scim stopped, scim-setup (config dialog)
doesn't accept of any changes that has made on that then. This could be right as
scim is stopped. But the strange thing is that ctrl-SPACE still work. Hence, the
aux window for the IME still functional. However, all input is display as ASCII
even though the IME seems to be switched on.

Dropping scim-reload-engines-165655.patch in scim-1.4.4-2.
