           Summary: xfce setting manager conflict with scim input method?
           Product: Xfce
           Version: 4.4.2
          Platform: PC (x86)
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: Medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: xfce-bugs at xfce.org
        ReportedBy: frigoris.ma at gmail.com

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b5)

Build Identifier: 

I use a newly installed Fedora 9 system with XFCE. Since I'm a Chinese speaker
I rely heavily on scim, an input method engine. However, xfce's setting manager
never seems to coexist well with it. If I have scim running, xfce-show-setting
would not work at all: it exits with status 0 immediately after started,
generating no output nor dialogue boxes. I tried killing xfce-mcs-manager by
hand and run xfce-setting-show, and the Setting Manager did show up, but scim
*sometimes* got crashed too.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start xfce4 from Fedora's gdm login screen
2. select Chinese locale
3. login with xfce

Actual Results:  
If scim is on, xfce setting cannot be displayed.

Expected Results:  
xfce setting should be ready all the time

There's a possible workaround as I described above (killing xfce-mcs-manager
and run xfce-setting-show again), but it is not stable and sometimes crashes
