some env variables wrongly set by qt-x11-free

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
qt-x11-free (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I am using scim(and skim) under en_US.UTF-8 with following env variables in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/75scim.

$ cat /etc/X11/Xsession.d/75scim
export XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM"
export XIM_PROGRAM="/usr/bin/scim -d"
export GTK_IM_MODULE=scim
export QT_IM_MODULE=scim

After recent qt-x11-free updates, some env variables are wrongly set by qt as below. My current qt version is 3.3.6-1ubuntu3.

$ env | grep XMODI*
XMODIFIER=@im=none (<-- this is invalid env variable.)

$ env | grep QT_IM*
QT_IM_MODULE=xim (<-- qt-x11-free overrides my setting.)
QT_IM_SWITCHER=imsw-none (<--I don't need this env variable.)

$env | grep GTK_IM*

$ env | grep XIM
XIM_PROGRAM=/usr/bin/scim -d (OK)

Please make qt's behavior to set env variables for IM module disabled if it's not necessary. Or check correctly existing env variables, so it should not override.
