bug#11103: 24.0.94; (error "Can't activate input method `dev-aiba'")

Sorry I dont get the context.
On my emacs 23.3.1 I can activate devanagari-aiba input method.
Is there something else you want me to check?
I dont know this input method (and google does not help) but looking at describe-input-method and trying out a bit it seems very close (identical??) to itrans.

I am copying Rustom who has more understanding of devanagari. He can
suggest the default input method to go with that particular language
environment and also test your earlier patch.

C-h L Devanagari actually gives the following output

Devanagari language environment

Such languages using Devanagari script as Hindi and Marathi
are supported in this language environment.

Input methods:
 devanagari-inscript ("DevIS" in mode line)
 devanagari-aiba ("DevAB" in mode line)
 devanagari-kyoto-harvard ("DevKH" in mode line)
 devanagari-itrans ("DevIT" in mode line)

Character sets:
 unicode: Unicode (ISO10646)

Coding systems:
 utf-8 (`U' in mode line):
       UTF-8 (no signature (BOM))
       (alias: utf-8 mule-utf-8)


My 2 cents will be that the current defaults of devanagari-aiba need
to be changed to devanagari-itrans. I don't speak the language that
uses devanagari script.
