Description Eido Inoue 2003-12-30 15:20:57 EST
Description of problem:
With certain Japanese servers that display multiple candidates in a
window (Canna... FreeWnn usually displays the candidates one at a time
inline unless a control/function sequence is pressed), the candidate
window will not be visible, and will be underneath the gnome-panel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Mozilla in a default Japanese environment with Canna running
2. Maximize the mozilla window
3. Put focus in an input area like the URL area, turn on kinput
   with Shift-Space, then type a romaji sequence in an input area
   (such as "sushi"), press the space bar twice-- the first time to
   convert, the second time to display alternate candidates.
Actual results:
The candidate window sometimes (especially the first time) appears
underneath the gnome-panel

Expected results:
The candidate window should be the top z-layer, with focus either
staying on the parent window or focus on the candidate window, and the
focus returning to the parent after a selection is chosen by pressing

Additional info:
The input status (the "[ あ ]" in the lower left corner) does always
stay on the top Z-layer, which is correct.

otaylor said that this is a general gtk problem.  I think he indicated
that kinput2 itself needs to implement this functionality.  Note that
it currently works with openoffice-1.1.0-24 and all qt apps, but not
mozilla and many other gtk2 apps.

It should be noted that IIIMF (on FC2t3) does not have this problem.
