I confirm Malayalam (ml_IN) locale too has this bug.
Tested on kwrite.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2009-11-10 18:05:38 EST
Have you tested with ibus-qt?

screenshot for cursor

I think when we type character it appears in white or in shadow and accordingly cursor immediately can be seen as moved to next column.
Comment 4 Parag Nemade 2009-11-11 20:39:58 EST
yes ibus-qt is installed when tested.

Yes, ibus-qt works in almost qt applications, except opera. Opera still refuses to have cursor-following-up function :-(

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Some Opera versions use static qt4 library. So I can not use ibus-qt plugin in system qt4 library. It is a limitation.
