scim stops working after reloading configuration
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:53:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Input with scim does not work anymore, irregardless of which other IME
installed, after refresh/restart the IME in the aux.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start gedit with zh_TW locale
2.start scim and select chewing IME
3.right click on chewing's aux window
4. select the second optiont to refresh the IME
scim fail to function anymore
scim should not fail
I thought I narrowed down to scim-chewing as pinyin seems ok for me. Tagoh-san
noticed this happend in all locale for all IME. Hence, raising the serverity due
to the scope of impact.
To get SCIM to work again, simply start a new gtk application has to start and
that will cause SCIM to start in the background.
Another interesting issue is that after scim stopped, scim-setup (config dialog)
doesn't accept of any changes that has made on that then. This could be right as
scim is stopped. But the strange thing is that ctrl-SPACE still work. Hence, the
aux window for the IME still functional. However, all input is display as ASCII
even though the IME seems to be switched on.
Dropping scim-reload-engines-165655.patch in scim-1.4.4-2.
scim works fine after change configuration and then reload this
