I finally found out how to make XIM work in rxvt.

I failed to set the environment variable XMODIFIERS, which seems to be
necessary for XIM in rxvt:

    export XMODIFIERS=""

XIM worked in XEmacs and Mozilla-M13 without this, but rxvt seems to
need it. Actually the kinput2 man-page mentions that this environment
variable is needed for some clients, while other clients look only at
the *inputMethod resource. Somehow I missed that when first reading
the kinput2 man-page. 

XIM still doesn't work for me in kterm-6.2.0, but for kterm the kinput
protocol works, so XIM isn't really needed for kterm.
