I also see this error, with the same IMSettings-WARNING message.

im-chooser-0.99.6-4.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
Eugene, what the kind of hotkeys are missing? im-chooser nor imsettings doesn't

Everything is working fine now, except that the hotkey shortcuts in SCIM setup
is missing. After adding the shortcuts myself, it worked perfectly. I believe
this should be a SCIM bug (same problem when Fedora 8 was released :)
im-chooser-0.99.6-4.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update im-chooser'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-3948

If you have upgraded from the remote host, it may be likely to fail restarting
the daemons. please make sure if im-settings-daemon is surely restarted
particularly. yes, restarting your desktop session would be safe and easier way
