Description of problem:
Preedit buffer remains after focus-out / focus in. It is not user friendly when user changed cursor location and prepared to re-type the whole new combination of character.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have ibus running.
2. Focus in by ctrl-space.
3. Input a key such as 'b'.
4. Focus out and in by ctrl-space.
5. Check result.
Previous input is still in preedit buffer ('b').
Preedit buffer is cleared.
Check cangjie5, chewing for usability patterns.
Sorry this is not just for chewing only. This is a general feature request for all IMEs. If you restrict for just 1 input method. Please kindly change component to scim-table as I tested.
This problem has been fixed in ibus-chewing-0.1.1.20081023-1.
Thx phuang, please remember ibus-table-chinese, too. :)

This is still true for f10 and rawhide right?

Yes. Submitted to upstream and merged into upstream's repo.
The patch is not in f10 and rawhide yet, atm.
Then please move the bug to rawhide :)
I think it is rather the user preference.
However, it is a problem that preedit buffer is not restored and shown when focus back in, which haven't been solved yet.

Working on having user preferences in ibus-table.

Which version you are triaging?
Oops, I was talking about ibus-chewing. Does it also appear in ibus-table?
Currently preedit is kept.
