SCIM driving me insane

a couple days ago, suddenly strange characters appeared in all apps when
typing. Shortly before that I accidentally pressed a button combo -
didn't know which.

I figured out that this was caused by SCIM having been triggered by the
combo. The problem is that now it does not go away anymore: it triggers
on many different combos, some interfering with window/desktop
management combos I have set in Keyboard Shortcuts. And the trigger
combos are very easy to hit by accident.

I can't exit scim from the icon in the notification area, it ignores me.
Deleting the email combos from the config panel does not help either,
next login it reverts them.

I can't find where scim is started in the first place.

I can't find a bug report about this, does this only happen to my
machine? I noticed several scim updates in Hardy during the last few
