I don't have the latest emacs to test the problem, but

in Emacs 23.2.1 (debian 6.0.2)

- under en_US.UTF-8 locale, I still can't activate scim using the XIM
  interface.

        $ emacs -Q &

- under zh_CN.UTF-8 locale, scim can be activated via the hotkey set in
  scim. The default hotkey is C-SPC, I have changed it to be <f12>.

        $ LANG="zh_CN.UTF-8" emacs -Q &
        # setting the LANG alone is enough, no need to actually change
        # your global system locale.

- Start "scim -d" under any LANG will no longer crash emacs.

        ==== output ====
        ~ $ LANG="zh_CN.UTF-8" scim -d
        Smart Common Input Method 1.4.9

        ~ $
        ==== end of output ====

- If anyone have the same problem, I recommand scim-bridge.el[1], which
  make scim usable in emacs via a minor-mode, and it does not require
  XIM at all.
