Description of problem:
I can't input Japanese character correctly into command line on kterm.
gnome-terminal has no problem
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kterm-6.2.0-37, kinput2 version 3.1 (2002/10/03), XFree86-4.3.0-33
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open kterm with -xim option
2. type commands including japanese as follows.
3. wrong character will be displayed
4. And the first character of next command ( 'l' of 'ls' ) will be ignored.
bash: s: command not found
Expected Results: Japanese character 'nihongo' will be displayed correctly.
because of kterm doesn't support UTF-8.
I'm closing this bug because we are going to support just one terminal
and we have decided to drop kterm from FC. If you found a bug on our
supported terminal(currently gnome-terminal), please feel free to file
