Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136990
Backspace fails after IIIMF input
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:52 EST
Description of problem:
After you input anything using IIIMF then hit ENTER to commit,
Backspace fails to delete anything. If you hit ENTER again to
newline, then Backspace is able to delete.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable cannaLE for Japanese.
2. Type "nihongo" then ENTER to commit.
3. Hit Backspace and see failure.
4. Hit ENTER for newline.
5. Hit Backspace a few times, now it works.
dcbw said this probably will require fixes to openoffice.org, IIIMF,
Pretty important to non-english IM users as it will make them unable
to do text editing properly. Dan, any pointers on where trigger this
bug in -10?
Current estimate is that Dan or Caolan can work on this week of Nov 15
or 22, due to other issues in the queue.
Nov 22 is the probably target date for starting work on this.

I've looked into OOo and I see that this problem happened due to the backspace
key event is always dropped. an attached patch fixes this problem. Also,
Bug#137522 was caused since OOo swallows the cursor keys events when it's even
a filtered key event. this patch can fixes that problem too by ignoring the
filtered key events.
Ok, looking into this bug now.
Ok, found the problem. It was both a Canna LE problem (diagnosed by
Akira Tagoh), which will be fixed with im-sdk >= 12.1-10 (specific
patch is leif-canna-fix-caret-position-r2070-136651.patch) and an OOo
problem. The OOo side of things should be fixed in 1.1.2-14 and later.
Err, it's for Bug#136651 (Canna LE side) and Bug#140716 (OOo side).
but not related this Backspace issue, though :)
It works quite well in 1.1.2-14.6.EL4 now.
Ok, can I close this one then, or is more work required?
Tested with CJK LE, CannaLE, hangulLE, xcin and chinput, backspace
problem has been removed. Will try with UnitLE for the indic locale
and update the bug shortly.
Confirm fixed in openoffice.org-1.1.2-14.6.EL4. Tested with all CJK LE
Tested with 1.1.2-17.6.EL4. It also works fine.
