I'm using e16 as my window manager. I use Terminal and urxvt as terminal windows and gvim for most of my editing. I recently installed SCIM to allow me to easily input Japanese characters. This works great. The problem I now have is rather minor. Sometimes when I close a gvim window, even if I haven't been using SCIM, I will get a SCIM message showing up on a terminal:
Code:
> GTK Panel of SCIM 1.4.11

Creating socket /tmp/scim-panel-socket:0-jbowlin: another instance of the server is already listening on this socket, exiting ...
This is not the end of the world but it is annoying and distracting. I don't know how to get it to stop. I don't even know how to get it to reliably repeat. It seems to happen out of the blue sometimes and then stop happening.

The gvim window does not have to be launched from a terminal window for that window to display SCIM error/warning messages. The messages seem to be randomly broadcast to some of my terminals. For example I just launched gvim from a panel and then closed it. I get 3 different SCIM messages showing up on 3 different terminal windows while 3 others remain unscathed.

ISTM these messages should go to a log file, maybe ~/.xsession-errors and not all my terminals. I do have *one* of these SCIM error messages in my .xsession-errors. It seems rather rude to clutter up my terminals with this noise.
