Unfortunate indeed, but not really a big deal.  I don't use emacs
myself, but from what I heard, using scim and emacs together means
Ctrl-space is caught by emacs and has the "set-mark" function, but fails
to activate the input method.

So it's emacs making scim "more or less useless in the default
configuration", not the other way around.  And as Arne said, since
scim's activation key can be easily changed, this is easy to work
