Wrong sequence.  It goes like this (for XIM, which I'm really growing to hate):

* application creates a callback via XOpenIM()
* Xserver receives a key sequence indicating a request for input method
* Xserver pipes keystrokes through input method specified by the callback

(yes, that's a bit of a simplification -- Steve will set me straight if it's
too simple)
