Description Qingyu Wang 2005-09-13 02:05:11 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; zh-CN; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050909 Red Hat/1.0.6-1.4.2 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
When using scim input in openoffice in RHEL 4, sometimes scim will be disable automatically. I must restart openoffice to activate scim again. At first I thought it will happen in openoffice irregularly, yet after test I find this bug just happens when I edit *.doc files(which are saved by Microsoft word) using openoffice. When using openoffice edit general file such as .sxw file, this problem won't happen. And I try XIM and IIIMF in the same situation, when I input with XIM the same bug happened, yet when with IIIMF, it seems that everything is OK. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
scim-1.4.2, RHEL 4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a .doc file which is saved as Microsoft word document;
2. Activate scim and input chinese and edit in the .doc file;


Actual Results:  scim will be disable automatically sometimes when edit .doc fine using openoffice, and user must restart openoffice to activate scim again.

Expected Results:  input Chinese and edit .doc file in oponoffice normally

This bug occured because I unset the environment variable GTK_IM_MODULE, after I
set GTK_IM_MODULE=scim the bug disappeared.

qwang, just verifying, did you file the bug against RHEL4 openoffice.org where
XIM is broken?
Comment 3 Qingyu Wang 2005-09-19 10:05:39 EDT
