Bug#952975: Subject: debian-i18n: gtk-3 in bullseye does not seem to support XIM input.

Package: debian-i18n
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable
Tags: l10n

Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?

I performed get-apt dist-upgrade by including testing repository.
Now my /etc/debian_version is
cat /etc/debian_version

Then I could no longer perform Japanese input using XIM protocol.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

    I found that mozilla thunderbird mailer and firefox browser did not accept Japanese input using XIM protocol at all (I used kinput2-wnn frontend). gedit
also did not accept Japanese input either.

Meanwhile, other programs continued to receive Japanese input.: tkremind, and a
few others.

So I suspect only gtk-3 linked programs suffered from the issue.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

Gtk-3 linked programs failed to do accept Japanese input using XIM protocol any
more (with kinput2-wnn forntend).
I could no longer trigger Japanese input mode by hitting control-Space (as set
by my configuration.)

Other programs (non gtk-3 linked programs) continued to accept Japanese input
using XIM protocol with kinput2-wnn frontend.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

I should be able to input Japanese characters as I could before the "apt-get
dist-upgrade" using XIM protocol with kinput2-wnn as frontend.

To wit: im-xim.so was missing.
    $mlocate im-xim.so
*   /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gtk-3.0/3.0.0/immodules/im-xim.so

The file marked with * above was missing after apt-get dist-upgrade.
I had to copy it back from im-xim.so.saved.
