OK, now I understand that you prefer LEIM due to its advantages (separate
input methods for each buffer) as well as to the disadvantages of handling
XIM in Emacs (can't type command key sequences).

Now I have the opposite question: why do you enable a XIM input method
while you are using a LEIM input method at the same time.  Is it because
you enable a global XIM input method for all applications?  Is it possible
to enable XIM input methods separately in each application including Emacs
instead of enabling a global XIM input method?
