Problem with ATOK Japanese Input Method


I'm using the Japanese input method called "ATOK" for
inputting text into GtkEntry, and am facing the
following problem: If I have multiple GtkEntry widgets
in my application, and I type something in any field
after enabling the IME (by pressing CTRL + SPACE), and
then I confirm my input (by pressing ENTER), and then
I focus into the next GtkEntry (by pressing TAB). 
What happens is that the ATOK IME bar (which is
displayed at the bottom of the display) suddenly
disappears.  So every time I want to type something in
a GtkEntry, I have restart the IME (by pressing CTRL +

I also noticed a strange behavior, in that once I have
typed something in all the fields, then this problem
doens't happen any longer.  That is, when I type
something in the last GtkEntry (after enabling the
IME), and then press TAB, the focus moves to the first
GtkEntry, and the IME bar remains shown.  In fact it
remains shown now for any subsequent moves across the

Could somebody tell me if this is a known problem/bug?

The simple GTK program that I'm running for this
testcase is appended below.
