This may be related to the XkeySym issue that Vlad recently brought up for
supporting Cryllic text. It sounds similar to his symptoms. Maybe his
fixes would help Japanese too. We would all love to support all the
world's languages including Japanese. If we can get some Japanese-speaking
hackers to help us I'm sure we could get the issues resolved. A lot of the
hard work and pain in supporting wide chars has been overcome.
