Description of problem:
When I set the option 'Input Method' as 'Follow the system-wide

responses too slow to work.
When I set the option 'Input Method' as 'Never use input method', all things are

The crash profile of Konqueror
Can you please install scim-pinyin-debuginfo and scim-debuginfo
to help get a more detailed backtrace.

The crash profile of Konqueror with debug info
Can you try uninstalling scim-pinyin temporarily and restarting your desktop
to see if you still get the crash without scim-pinyin?
Thanks for the gdb backtraces btw: one problem with them is that they are missing
the inner stack frames apparently. Sorry but could you try running konqueror
directly from gdb like this:
$ gdb konqueror
and if that gives more information please attach the output here. Thanks.

The gdb backtrace of konqueror
Thanks for the new backtrace, so it seems the crash is occurring in scim-pinyin.
Would you be able to disable Smart Pinyin (either temporarily remove scim-pinyin,
disable it in scim-setup, or at least try changing to an other SCIM IMEngine) to
so see if it also crashes then?
[root@william ~]# scim-setup
/usr/bin/scim-setup: line 32: 3753 Segmentation fault
/usr/lib/scim-1.0/scim-helper-launcher setup 8034d025-bdfc-4a10-86a4-82b9461b32b0 $*
When I remove the package scim-pinyin, everything is ok.
Does scim-pinyin only crash with Konqueror and firefox? Can it work well with
other gnome and kde applications?
Most apps [Terminal and Text Editor for GNOME]associated with scim-pinyin have
no response for 3-10 secs and then works.
I can not reproduce it in my box. I guess maybe it is because of bad phrase
files or configure files. Could you backup and remove $HOME/.scim folder and
restart desktop to test it? If I am right, please package .scim folder and
attach it to bugzilla. Thanks.
Also are you using GNOME or KDE desktop?
You are right. First I backup the $HOME/.scim folder and then remove it,
everything is ok.

The tar of $HOME/.scim
It is because of some errors in bad user pinyin phrase table or configure files.
I think it should not happen if use does not do some lethal operations (like
shutdown computer by power button). So I will close it as NOTABUG. If anyone
find similar bugs, feel free to reopen it. :)
