I received your mail on June 15th, I was just swarmed by school things.
Apology for the unresponsiveness, and thank you for resending it.

Did you mean in the scim setup program, left-hand part, Panel section?
I have only Panel -> GTK there, is there supposed to be something else?
I'll test your patch, thanks.

I would like to push them to unstable as well.  The scim package is
almost ready to be uploaded now, and I just need to merge the 1.0.2-3
documentation changes.  The problem is that new C++ library uploads are
frozen by FTP team right now in preparation of the GCC 3.3 to 4.0 C++
API transition.  I am not sure if experimental upload can be an
exception.  I'll consult Osamu's opinion and ask around before the
upload.  But don't worry, I'll try to push 1.2 into unstable ASAP.

Just for the record, a bug exists in scim-input-pad 0.1.0 that
translated menu text doesn't show up in the trayicon right-click menu.
This is fixed in upstream CVS.  I'll see if upstream is willing to do a
0.1.1 release.

Thanks for the testing and porting work,
