  I have done extensive XIM work in the crossover tree and have it 
working very well with a wide range of input methods including half and 
full ime input methods used in applications such as office-jp.

   I have been quite busy recently but will try hard to get a patch put 
together to get that all into wine. If you want to work on it before i 
get a chance you can hit the crossover source tree which i believe in 
pointed to somewhere on our web site.
