Public bug report changed:

Yes, removing scim-gtk2-immodule would eliminate the segfault.  The
reason is that scim-gtk2-immodule is the GTK IM module provided by scim,
which links to libstdc++.so.6, while Acroread links to libstdc++.so.5.

See debian bug #323216 (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-
bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=323216) for details.

A workaround would be setting environment variable GTK_IM_MODULE to xim,
and start scim manually.  Use the following lines in your scim setting
(if you've never written any scim setting and use GNOME, add them to
your ~/.gnomerc):

export XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM"
export GTK_IM_MODULE="xim"
scim -d

This is assuming bash shell.
