1.152.1. RHBA-2011:0355: scim bug fix update
Updated scim packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The Smart Common Input Method (SCIM) project provides an input method user interface, and a development platform for input method development.
* When using the SCIM Input Method Setup utility to adjust the global setup of IMEngine modules, clicking the "Disable All" button failed to activate the "Apply" button. This rendered users unable to confirm their changes, and one of the items had to be manually selected and deselected to work around this problem. With this update, a patch has been applied to address this issue, and clicking the "Disable All" button now always allows users to click the "Apply" button as expected. (BZ#493809
* When an application window is opened, SCIM creates a 1x1 window in the background. Prior to this update, this 1x1 window was not properly destroyed when the application window was closed in a non-standard way (for example, due to a crash or upon receiving the SIGKILL signal). To prevent unnecessary memory consumption, this update adapts the underlying source code to ensure the 1x1 windows are destroyed as expected. (BZ#664464
All users of scim are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
