Then everything is working as expected. GtkText is not just "deprecated"
it is marked as "broken"... it's only there to help people keep things
compiling while they are porting their app, but there is no expectation 
that it works correctly.

In the case of input methods, we removed the old gdk_im_* support
that GtkText was using, but it wasn't worth porting it to the new
GtkImContext support, so it doesn't have any input method support
at all.
