Description Mohd Izhar Firdaus Ismail 2007-11-09 06:41:42 EST
Description of problem:
When SCIM Japanese input is selected, and the options
"Share input method among all applications" and "Stick windows" are enabled,
Gecko (Firefox/Epiphany/Kazehakase) and Pidgin (and maybe some other apps)
suffers random segmentation faults. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
scim-anthy-1.2.4-2.fc8

How reproducible:
Random, but frequent

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable SCIM
2. Enable the "Share the same input method among all applications" option @
FrontEnd's Global Setup
3. Right click at the SCIM panel icon, enable "Stick Windows"
4. Switch to Japanese text input
5. Test1 : Launch epiphany, press ctrl+t, epiphany segfaults
6. Test2 : Launch firefox, open the preferences dialog(Edit>Preferences),
firefox crashes
7. Test3 : Launch pidgin, login into any account, add a new buddy, a crash
dialog appears (though pidgin does not crash fully)
  
Actual results:
Several apps, mainly Gecko based apps, segfaults freqeuently

Expected results:
The apps should not crash

Additional info:
Theres no problem with English input, and I also tried with korean, also I did
not notice the problem repeats ..

Thanks. if you remove scim-chewing and/or scim-pinyin, do you still see this issue?

Also the backtrace from gdb with various -debuginfo package would helps too.
