Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 462170
gvim ignores space committed by gtk im module.
Last modified: 2009-11-24 00:25:52 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gvim
2. Use Ctrl + Space to enable ibus input method
3. Choice PinYin engine
4. Press Space key
Input ' ' (space) in gvim
I found the problem is in file mbyte.c function xim_queue_key_press_event.
In this function, gvim will set global values xim_expected_char & xim_ignored_char before call gtk_im_context_filter_keypress, to let gvim ignore the char stored in xim_expected_char during gtk_im_context_filter_keypress. But before returning from xim_queue_key_press_event, gvim does not clear those two global variables. It will cause gvim ignore the char stored in xim_expected_char forever.

patch for fixing this problem
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
It does not happend in f12. So close it.
