I changed component to iiimf because I solved it as the following.

In the file /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/iiimf, XIM should be set as
But now set as
Is this typo?

I strongly think this bug also affects in RHEL4 because RHEL4 is based on FC3
and should be fixed.

FC3 is no longer supported by the Fedora Project.  You may want to check the
Fedora Legacy Project if you need this issue resolved in FC3.

FC5 has just been released and uses SCIM instead of IIIMF, so I'm not sure if
this bug applies anymore.  See the release notes:


If this is a problem for your RHEL3 or RHEL4 systems, please contact your
support representative at Red Hat.
