So, how about st's handling of XOpenIM? Does it break too?
On the tcl/tk forums I also found some info on which I based my last
email [0], assuming your setup doesn't set X_LOCALE.
A segfault may also mean that you haven't finished setting up your
system. I'd like to see an strace log, what distro you set up how far
and if you have to run locale-gen manually on it... with the
uncommented utf-8 locale in /etc/locale.gen.
