Bug Description

Binary package hint: pidgin

Please allow me to describe how to make the bug happen again:
1.use the SCIM-smart pinyin to type the simplified Chinese characters in the pidgin's box.
2.when the rows of the Chinese characters reaches 3, the SCIM input bar will flash, and the pidgin will stop to respond.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Could you try to reproduce the same with Ubuntu 8.10 or 9.04? Thanks in advance.

Dear Pedro:
   It is still a problem for me! And I can reproduce the same problem in Ubuntu 8.1 or 9.04 (in virtualbox 2.1.2), so it seems that the author of pidgin didn't fix the bug.

Change importance to Medium since SCIM is no longer used from Karmic.
