Problem with scim input

Hello list,

I am using Abiword, Inkscape and Gimp as GTK programs and I input Japanese and 
Chinese with scim.

I switched the input module with GTK_IM_MODULE=scim to scim and this works 
fine, but the problem is the following:

Because Japanese and Chinese need to modify the entered string, usually a pop 
up box appears where the user can choose the desired character. But in 
Inkscape and Abiword, and partly in GIMP, the problem is, that the entered 
character do not appear “on the spot”. 

I made a screenshot to illustrate the issue:

The correct behaviour should be that the “こんば” appears right after the |, just 
like any other Text you're typing and the drop box with the Kanji characters 
should appear below the text.

It is odd that in Firefox, this works perfectly. But in Inkscape and Abiword, 
this is really almost unusable, because you don't know where this box will 
appear. I already wrote to the Inkscape mailing list, but they don't know 
anything about it, and because it also appears in Abiword, I think this is a 
GTK issue.

In Inkscape, the same behaviour also appears on my Windows system.

I hope somebody knows how to fix this problem. I can't stress how annoying 
this is.
