I cannot reproduce this issue while I set the idling time is 1 minute.

Comment 2 fujiwara 2022-03-11 02:37:40 UTC
I can reproduce this now, thank you for the report.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2022-03-16 06:30:25 UTC
I seem able to reproduce this, even without any pre-edit (nor even the IME turned on),
using gnome-terminal for example.
As reported, switching application focus brings back the Input Source indicator and input.

I used Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-36_Beta-1.1.iso to test.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2022-04-08 07:31:53 UTC
The IMEs also disappear from the Input Source menu.

Discussed during the 2022-04-11 blocker review meeting: [1]

The decision to classify this bug as an AcceptedFreezeException was made:

"It is a noticeable issue that cannot be fixed with an update."

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2022-04-14 03:09:00 UTC
It looks to me that somehow the disabling of IM state on the lockscreen password
is persisting back into the user session or something?

I opened https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/-/issues/5346
