I'm surprised by this. I've only tested GTK+-2 with kinput2 (Japanese)
and ami (Korean), but I would expect other XIM based input
methods to work as ewll.

It's possible that if chinput only supports over-the-spot, and
not the on-the-spot or root-window styles, then it might not
work properly with GTK+-2.

What behavior do you observe?

If you set the G_BROKEN_FILENAME environment variable, GTK+
will treat all filenames as the encoding of your locale.

Autodetection isn't really possible on something as short
as a filename.
