im-chooser is looking at PIDs when XIM_PROGRAM and AUXILIARY_PROGRAM is brought
up. however /usr/bin/scim what currently scim.conf has for XIM_PROGRAM is
bringing up multiple processes and exits after that. so that pid is invalid then.
This is what's happening now. FYI.

Fixed in 1.4.7-111
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2008-02-25 20:15:19 EST
This change to scim-conf seems to break scim startup for some users.
Probably starting up the XIM socket first may prevent SCIM starting
up correctly sometimes.  It might be a bug and/or race condition, and
may depend on the speed of the machine perhaps...

I modified scim.conf to use /usr/bin/scim to start scim related processe. 
In the new version scim.conf, scim will not start as a daemon.
im-settings-daemon can close it by sending SIGINT or SIGTERM signal to scim

FIXED in version 1.4.7-12.
