Running Debian Squeeze with scim 1.4.9-2. Using the window manager xmonad 0.9.1. To reproduce:

* start a terminal
* from the terminal, launch iceweasel
* quit iceweasel
* focus should now return to the terminal, but the keyboard has stopped working.
* switch to another workspace and back, and the keyboard works again.

Someone else told me they had this problem with scim under Stumpwm. It seems to be connected with tiling window managers.
Apart from iceweasel, I also experienced the problem when exiting gimp and conkeror. For terminal emulators, I tried urxvt, xterm,
and gnome-terminal, and the problem happened in all three. After I killed scim, the problem no longer happened.

    scim has moved development to github. Seeing that this ticket is unverified I ask you to kindly open a new ticket at https://github.com/scim-im/scim/issues/ if you are still affected by this bug. Thank you.
