Comment 3 Mayank Jain 2006-09-02 05:46:20 EDT
Initial investigation...

This seems to be a gtkhtml bug as the composer editor is a gtkhtml widget.

File - $evo/composer/e-msg-composer.c
/* Editor component.  */
p->eeditor = bonobo_widget_new_control (GNOME_GTKHTML_EDITOR_CONTROL_ID,
bonobo_ui_component_get_container (p->uic));

Also, in the same file, I found that evo just handles the ESC key & passes all
other events back to gtkhtml3 for processing.

static int
composer_key_pressed (EMsgComposer *composer, GdkEventKey *event, void *user_data)
	if (event->keyval == GDK_Escape) {
		do_exit (composer);
		g_signal_stop_emission_by_name (composer, "key-press-event");
		return TRUE;
	return FALSE;

Aman, I just checked this on Rawhide, this seems to be fixed. Can you confirm &
close the bug?

This *might* have fixed the bug...

Comment 9 Leon Ho 2006-09-26 08:29:51 EDT
Mayank, is it duplicate of 206261?
Comment 10 Akira TAGOH 2006-09-26 10:57:02 EDT
better trying with GTK_IM_MODULE=scim. then you can see if it's relevant to
#206261. if still happens, then just copy the broken strings and paste to gedit
say and see how it's displayed. if IM sends the correct character code sequqnce
but just gtkhtml's rendering is broken, copy-and-psate should works and gedit
should renders it properly, because whether IM works properly and applications
is rendering the characters properly is different issue. and since the input on
other languages works fine on evo's composer, it might be an issue in IM if
copy-and-paste doesn't work.
Comment 11 Mayank Jain 2006-09-28 07:07:53 EDT
Hi Leon,

"ii", "oo", "uu", "dH" are 1st modifier problems while "kRoo" are 2nd modifier
problems. Hence as per Tyronne, this bug is not duplicate of bug 206261.

206261 is for 1st modifiers & this bug is for second modifier. However, the
reason for both of them *might* be same. 

IMO, lets keep this open & simultaneously keep on following Bug 206261.

Comment 12 Jens Petersen 2006-09-29 12:17:09 EDT
I also suspect this is a duplicate of bug 206261
and indeed can reproduce this with latest scim-bridge.

> ... can reproduce this with latest scim-bridge.

Sorry, CAN'T reproduce with scim-bridge-0.4.5-3.fc6.
