Description Pete Zaitcev 2005-01-08 18:55:28 EST
Description of problem:

When trying to katakanize a set of hiragana, I hit arrow down key.
Before, it was interpreted by the input method. But now it goes
into the x-chat.

This may be an x-chat problem specifically, because arrow-down
continues to work in gnome-terminal ok (e.g. does NOT get into
the gnome-terminal itself).

A workaround is avaible, by hitting Control-N.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start xchat. You will not send anything, so just get an input box.
2. Type some garbage. You will recall it from history.
3. Switch to Ja with GIMLET for x-chat. A little IIIMF window will
   appear near the corner of x-chat.
4. Type a few kana, hit cursor down. NOTHING HAPPENS.
5. Hit cursor up: the x-chat will recall the garbage you typed at
   step 2.

Actual results:

Arrow keys get delivered to x-chat

Expected results:

Arrow keys to rotate between hiragana, katakana, romanji.

Additional info:

I do not remember precisely what the last working version was
and it it has broke with new xchat or new iiimf. I ran "yum update"
and this started to happen, about three weeks ago.

Setting severity to low, because a workaround is available.

Well, surely this is a xchat bug, because it doesn't call
gtk_im_context_filter_keypress() before doing something with the key events. so
there is no way to filter the key which the Input Method wants to use. reassigning.
