           Summary: KDE 4.2 beta 2 apps seem to have problems working with
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: lilwong at gmail.com

Version:           4.1.85 (using Devel)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Compiled sources

I use Chinese pretty often, so I have been keeping scim running in my KDE
session lately. 

Problem is, scim and KDE 4 apps seem to have problem with contention for
keystrokes. While I'm moving between tabs in konsole (shift-left/right), I may
suddenly find that konsole doesn't accept any inputs anymore. In konsole, I
"fix" it by using the mouse to click on another tab and typing some random
keystrokes (which would be accepted) and then move back to the tab which I was
working on. Then it would happen again randomly (and pretty often too).

I don't use skim as the kubuntu forums advised that it was not working well
with KDE 4. I installed scim together with the scim-bridge-client-qt4 package

I'm using KDE 4.2 beta 2 currently. 

This issue happens for at least 3 other KDE 4 apps as well: kate, kopete and
konqueror. In Kate, there doesn't seem to be any way to go around it other than
to close the window and start up again. In Kopete, it would get stuck in a
particular chat window and I'd have to cycle through the rest of my chat
windows until I find one where I can type into and it would be ok.

I know that this issue may be scim-related but it seems to happening to KDE 4
apps only, hence I'm reporting it here.
