Hrm, I set my scim to use canna and ran MWF app, but since
my environment is fine and does not result in "Could not get XIM",
I couldn't reproduce this bug (I have no idea how to break XIM support
safely). So far, I assume it is your environment that is broken.
All the XIM initialization sequence is written in
EnsureLayoutInitialized() in

You might want to try some native XIM samples such as:

Finally, as a workaround you can set environment XMODIFIERS=dummy to
avoid call to XOpenIM() which is likely breaking your mono/mwf
We cannot introduce any workaround for you, as we cannot avoid call to
XOpenIM() while everything looks fine.
