I have a key labelled as both `]' (for English layout) and `ъ' (for Russian.)
I use LEIM in Emacs, because with XIM I cannot invoke bindings like `C-x v ='
(becomes `C-x м =') and until recently I couldn't even type `M-d' (would get
`M-в' instead), but now this works OK.  Also, with XIM I cannot have separate
input methods for each buffer.

I use `russian-computer' LEIM input method.

Everything correct.
