Default X input method in Kubuntu 8.04 RC with East Asian system language doesn't work

In a freshly installed Kubuntu 8.04 RC, if the system language is an East
Asian one, such as Simplified Chinese, which is chosen during system
installation, then the default X input method should be "scim", not
"scim-bridge" which is currently the default.
See this screenshot for illustration: http://tinyurl.com/5lcs7n
Also, if English is chosen to be the system language during system
installation, and after the installation the user installs and adds an East
Asian language (e.g. Chinese) from System Settings -> Regional & Language,
then the default X input method (as in the screenshot) is still "XIM", not
"scim". I recommend that as long as at least one East Asian language is
added, the system automatically switches the default X input method (as seen
in the screenshot) to "scim".
As a bonus, all the other options ("scim-bridge", "XIM", "Simple Composing
Input Method") should better not be displayed because they're useless
