I also have experienced this problem. I'll relate my experiences below, but
first some environment info:
Fedora Core 11 (rawhide)
NB: I am *not* using SCIM, but instead use ibus and a japanese im (ibus-anthy).
However, it is exteremely rare that I use japanese in a konsole window.
What happens for me, is that I have one konsole running with several tabs (not
sure if the fact of multiple tabs is important or not). At some point, when I
come back to type in any of the tabs, keys don't get recognised. i.e. i type,
and nothing comes out. In general, it doesn't matter which of the tabs I type
in, none respond. Interestingly, if I start a new konsole instance (not just a
new window, but running konsole again), then the keyboard doesn't work in that
However, in these cases, often there will be one tab that seems to accept a
keypress, but instead of displaying it, konsole immediately switches to the
next tab, and the keypress appears in that window. Very odd!
When the problem occurs for me, if I activate the window menus (e.g. File) with
the mouse, then I can navigate those menus with the keyboard, and some times
the console input works after this.
I've also noticed, like the original reporter, that I can sometimes fix this
issue by continuously cycling through tabs and pressing keys, and sometimes by
using the menu Edit->Clear & Reset. However there doesn't seem to be a clear,
repeatable solution. Usually I have to try these things a few times before
konsole starts working again.
NB: while this problem is happening with konsole, other apps seem unaffected.
At least, firefox still accepts keypresses correctly. I am not sure about
other kde apps however.
