Description Caius 'kaio' Chance 2009-02-08 18:49:48 EST
Description of problem:
When pidgin is started, there was no input method started along with that. However, the IM would be started if run pidgin from gnome-terminal with `GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus pidgin` (or `GTK_IM_MODULE=scim pidgin` if scim was chosen as default IM). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install IM.
2. Choose default with im-chooser.
3. Start pidgin from application menu, or `pidgin` from desktop terminal.
Actual results:
pidgin was started without IM.

Expected results:
pidgin was started with IM.

Additional info:
All other apps that used GTK+-2.0 have IM started along properly.

Is this a duplicate of Bug #477918?

In any case, I do sometimes see this problem with pidgin, but most of the time it is working properly.  I don't know what is going on here.

How about rename bug #477918 summary to be more precise?
