Description Jim Breen 2006-02-21 21:05:15 EST
Description of problem:

I have IIIMF enabled for Japanese input, and am using Firefox 1.0.7
as a browser. Typically the IM is not active - I only turn it on
when entering Japanese text. It sits on the bar as [Ja]. I only have to 
click on a few links in WWW pages in Firefox and suddenly the disk becomes
very active and "top"  shows that iiimd is rapidly growing. If I let it go
it uses my whole 1Gb  swap partition (currently I have a ulimit on the
init.d script to kill iiimd at 256Mb).

Note that it does *not* occur when entering Japanese or other text
in Firefox, and it does not happen when using Japanese-capable
apps such as gnome-terminal, mlterm, ebview, etc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Firefox 1.0.7

iiimf - don't know - whatever came on the fc4 CDs.

How reproducible:

Happens every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make sure iiimd is running (I have it on my task bar - Gimlet)
2.click a few links in Firefox
Actual results:

See above.

Expected results:

Correct behaviour of iiimd

An update.

Since posting that bug, I ran up2date over my system (something I
should have done before posting). I see it brought in a number of
iiimf rpms.

Since then the runaway swapspace problem with iiimd has not
occurred again.

Comment #1:
To clarify, does it mean you have never seen this problem after updating the
package to the latest one?
Comment 3 Jim Breen 2006-03-06 19:21:48 EST
Correct. I can no longer reproduce the problem. I suggest it be dropped,
as it has probably been fixed already. Sorry.
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2006-03-07 00:17:54 EST
ok, so please reopen this if you see it again. closing now.
