I can't seem to reproduce with with a stock RHEL 3 WS (Japanese
Install with all RHN updates). Maybe I don't understand your
instructions to reproduce. Using it's gnome-terminal, and typing the
sequence after an "echo" command, and pressing return (which commits
the pre-edit sequence), it seems output only five "ã£", which is what
I expected the pre-edit buffer to contain.

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2004-03-02 01:45:14 UTC
Hmm, I could reproduce this problem once, but it seems not always,
because I can't reproduce it right now.

Comment 3 Nakai 2004-03-02 06:28:43 UTC
OK, if I remove ~/.canna, it works correctly. So if Adrian had ~/.canna,
you would see the same problem. If user don't have ~/.canna, the
kinput2 candidate for 'shou' is 12 line, buf with ~/.canna, which
useradd generates, 24 line.

The default ~/.canna might have the problem.
I think Tagoh also changed it to use kana key binding, right?

(bhuang@redhat.com is still in QA contact...)

Comment 5 Akira TAGOH 2004-03-02 06:57:13 UTC
It seems to happen if you enable break-into-roman. and if .canna is
missing, it doesn't appear so that break-into-roman is disabled by

Comment 6 Eido Inoue 2004-03-02 15:32:01 UTC
comment 3: Nakai, could you attach a sample .canna file to this bug so
other QA testers can easily reproduce? Thanks!

Comment 7 Akira TAGOH 2004-03-03 01:25:13 UTC
make sure your .canna file includes (setq break-into-roman t) to
reproduce this problem.

Comment 8 Nakai 2004-03-03 14:58:41 UTC
Sane guys would use /etc/skel/.canna for test instead of my copy.

Comment 9 Akira TAGOH 2004-03-17 11:27:30 UTC
Fixed in 3.7p1-5.
