As an example, I can think of korean input methods (nabi or hangul LE)
are usually commit character when composing.
A test case would be 'rksk' keystrokes. Typing the whole 'rksk' will
commit the 'rk' character, and the 'sk' will be still in preedit buffer.
I found out this when I was debugging a problem in gtkhtml. The cause of
the problem is because the preedit buffer still contains characters
