Description Mike FABIAN 2013-10-01 02:17:19 EDT
- Install Fedora 20 Alpha
- sudo yum install ibus-anthy
- sudo yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing ibus-typing-booster

Package version should now be >= this:


- Add anthy input method using “gnome-control-center region”
- Select anthy input method in the gnome panel
- click on lock icon in the gnome panel to lock the screen
- type “aa”

→ One sees:

  [●あ      ]

  in the password entry field.

  I.e. while typing the first “a”, the anthy input method was
  disabled and an “a” was inserted and displayed as a bullet, while
  typing the second “a” anthy was enabled and one sees the あin the

When using the mouse in the lock screen to push up the clock
and then typing the password, the problem does not occur.
To reproduce the problem, one needs to start typing immediately
an not push up the clock using the mouse.

ibus-typing-booster >= 1.2.4-1 shows the same problem as ibus-anthy.
Comment 4 fujiwara 2013-10-01 03:36:58 EDT

Patch for bus/engineproxy.c

Thank you for the report.

Actually I have tried f19 without the Fedora internal patch and I haven't noticed this problem in f20.
So I'm not sure if the problem is new or regression in f20 GDBusProxy cache.
It seems the cache is not saved immediatelly and the old cache is aways returned in this bug.
To fix this, need to save the cache by manual.
Attached the candidate patch.
