Hi Kim,
          Judging by the fact that AbiWord (Write) won't let you enter
English characters, I suspect that the Gtk IM is permently triggered.
I would guess that somehow we need to overide the locale seen by
environment for the English characters to be entered.

With regards to Write, I don't believe that setting the locale
accessible from UI as it currently stands. However if you manage to
set the locale to en_US and start a new Write session it will likely
accept English.
