Did a little experiment. I installed the Kubuntu desktop, reaccessed the
keyboards, including SCIM, then tried keying Chinese again. SCIM appears
whenever there is an opportunity for writing, including Firefox.
OpenOffice no longer crashes when I try to key Chinese in it. Nothing at
all happens, because SCIM doesn't recognize OOo as a worthy surface on
which to write. Curiouser and curiouser!
