The IM comes first, indeed, hence the problems.  Maybe there's a way for
Emacs to temporarily suspend the external IM processing.  IF so, someone
will have to implement support for it :-(

But if/when such support is installed, we could maybe automatically
disable IM processing after C-x or in windows displaying
special-mode buffers.  That would be really welcome.
