scim-input-pad is also required to reproduce the problem. For radicals in
unicode (u+2E80 - u+2EF3), there are actually more missing.
from the input-pad, the missing characters are:
2E81, 2E8B, 2E97, 2EB3.
from the character map (gnome-character-map), the missing characters are:
2E81, 2E82, 2E8B, 2E8F, 2E90,
2E91, 2E94, 2E97, 2E9E, 2EA6,
2EB1, 2EB3, 2EB4, 2EB5, 2EC7,

2EE9, 2EEA, 2EEB, 2EEC, 2EED,
