In developing software for linguistic applications our team recently developed
a patch for the SCIM input method manager that allows us to programmatically
change the selected Input Method (IM). The key idea is that when a user
switches from a textbox that expects English input to, say, a textbox that
expects Thai, the Input Method is automatically switched.
Naturally we do this switch in the OnEnter eventhandler. Unfortunately, it
seems that the X Input Context is switched AFTER the OnEntry event is fired. As
a result we end up switching the IM for the previous context (ie the English
textbox) rather than the new one (ie the Thai textbox).

Reproducible: Always
