The XIM module, while partially enabling us to fix the Amharic Compose issue (#7474), seems creates problems for layouts in locales which do not have a glibc locale defined (eg: Dari, etc). We need Compose support only for Amharic right now (and also probably Khmer - which has not been tested very extensively so far), and so I propose that we load the XIM module conditionally.
It is to be noted however, that the module which is loaded by default (gtk-im-context-simple) does have support for commonly used Compose sequences (which are used in the Western world).
