Description of problem:
In this version of im-sdk, GIMLEt is only visible in the ja locale.
Even when it is visible, it is not working properly as it will always
display "English" and the status window (the yellow box under the
application) remain to be active
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1) FC 2 (stable)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in at gdm with any CJK locale
2. Add GIMLET to the panel
3. start gedit
Unless user is in ja locale, GIMLET will not show.
GIMLET should be displayed in the panel and it should remove status
window from the application.
