Description of problem:
In CJK locale, input characters gets replicated when they are not
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select any CJK locale at gdm and log in (in this example, we use Japan)
2.Start Evolution -> Select Cal
3.Ctrl+SPACE to activate the Language Engine
4.Single click any of the time widget and enter 'aka'
5.Repeat Step 4, you should see the charcters replicating
Please refer to screen shot
Characers does not get replicated.
Tested in GNOME environment
What's the status of this in rawhide?
Well, I apologize I totally misunderstood about this problem. so this problem
still appears. the real problem is that the preedit buffer isn't reset when the
focus is changed by clicking another cell during preediting. I mean
gtk_im_context_reset has to be called at the focus in/out events.
So correctly this isn't "input preedit string gets replicated" because the
preedit characters isn't committed at the editing cell when another cell is
clicked. but it just appears again at the another cell so that GtkIMContext
doesn't get any the end of preediting notification or so by neither pressing
'enter' nor gtk_im_context_reset().
there appears to be a fix in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=264485
that is stagnating.
This behavior disappears to me in the latest evolution now. so perhaps we could
close this now?
Err, this bug is still there. why I couldn't see this at that time is, I've
enabled the global IC mode on scim. but even it introduces another bug on evo.
so the handling of IM on calendar view is totally broken.
This bug is duplicate of #131227, marking as duplicate.

Fixed in upstream code... adding the external
bugzilla ref - http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=264485
The Patch in http://bugzilla.gnome.org/attachment.cgi?id=65213&action=view seems
to be missing from the latest builds. Can you please apply it to the latest code
If you need any more info, please let me know.
PS: this is same bug as bug #157391 and bug #131227 & hopefully the same patch
Done - evolution-2.7.3-8
Only two of the three hunks in the patch applied. The third (plugs a memory
leak) is already fixed upstream.
Changing component from evolution-data-server to evolution.
for ja_JP is working fine, no replication for strings
