I haven't checked recently, but I think there will be no exception then.  I
think that the console will retain control over whether XIM is active.
However, you're unlikely to make a mistake in visual command mode (i.e. beep
mode) because XIM will still keep its indicator on the screen, reminding you
of your input mode, until you hit shift-space.

The gnome console has trouble with hankaku katakana but kterm doesn't.  If
there's any chance that you'll be editing a file containing hankaku
katakana, you'll either want to use vim 6.0 under kterm, or gvim 6.0.

Mike Fabian reminded us that Ctrl-O should also turn XIM on and off.  I
haven't tested it under vim 6.0z beta.

Yours sincerely,
Norman Diamond
