Do you have skim installed as well? Either way, please change this to
"/DefaultPanelProgram = /usr/bin/scim-panel-gtk" and try again.

Are you sure that "*.utf8" works the same way as "*.UTF-8"? If not,
please use "UTF-8" and try again.

This really shouldn't happen. I take that you didn't modify the
"/DefaultPanelProgram" in ~/.scim/global yourself, my main suspect is
skim's configuration tool. If that's the reason scim stops working,
it's really a nasty problem and I can't think of a good way to solve it

This is really sad. I wonder if you have time to test with a new user
(therefore a fresh home directory)? If the im-switch method still
doesn't work, that's a pretty serious bug in scim. Both of the scim
maintainers are GTK+/GNOME user, we would really appreciate some testing
from KDE users.

Yeah, that file is a bit outdated (it is mainly for etch). This will be
fixed in the next upload.

It's probably more suited for scim-bridge package rather than scim
package. Also see bug #442172  I just reported yesterday.
