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
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?
yeah, I filed the bug against RHEL4 openoffice.org just now, bug 168676
