Note that it seems that XIM is broken in OpenOffice.org of RHEL4, and not
specifically native SCIM (which is unsupported in RHEL4).  The tested failures
happened with SCIM and IIIMF's XIM bridge.  If the same happens with other XIM
software then this represents a failure serious problem that we should correct
in the next RHEL4U.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-09-19 13:45:00 EDT
A good next step would be to verify if this problem exists for other legacy XIM
software supported in RHEL4 like xcin?

Not on issuetracker for an update, decision has been made to move such IM issues
to RHEL-5 nextrelease
