Description IBM Bug Proxy 2001-06-06 18:48:33 EDT
Look up table of IME  behavior is deferent with Sawfish and Enlightment.

While DBCS Japanese is inputted , 
The candidate of the changed character appears on Lookup Table.
When for example a root window such as editor application was moved.
The lookup table does not follow with application. 
This matter occurs only on Sawfish of Window Manager. 
On Enlightment, It follows with application. Though this is not a big
But, the lookup table should follow with application.

OS: Sawfish windows manager on Linux
      e.g. TurboLinux Server 6.5Japanese, 
        TurboLinux 6.0Japanese Workstation
        Redhat 7.1 Japanee

A reproduce process is as follows.
    1. Open kterm
    2. Active IM (canna or FreeWnn) ( Shift+Space )
    3. Type "kyou"
    4. Show Lookup table ( Press Space twice )
    5. Move the root window (kterm)   
       Then, the Lookup table doesn't follow with kterm 
                <---This is strange. It should follow with kterm.

I thought this was a feature in sawfish... the idea being that when you move a
window, its children (or windows you have placed in the same group) will move
with it.  hp?

The issue is that Enlightenment moves dialog windows along with their parent. 
I think in most cases this was bad (e.g. for a file dialog). We can't really
special-case the lookup window. So we'd like to keep the current sawfish behavior.
