scim-sinhala is abandonware, the original authors and maintainer are not
maintaining it. It has multiple problems, some of which are probably
described in the archives.

I don't use scim-sinhala, I mainly use a phonetic static input method.
I've tried to approach input methods by first working on the layout and
then doing an implementation. Here are the m17n implementations for 3
different schemes:

I think two of them are already in the the m17n-contrib package and all
three should be in the m17m-contrib package when they release the next

You'll find that OOo grabs Alt bindings instead of leaving it to the
input method. Hence, out of the three, si-trans is the one that works
best on OOo.
