Thank you for replying. I will try to provide all the information you
have asked for.
The .uim file that gets created on every reboot contains only one line:
dave at homebase:~$ more .uim
(define default-im-name 'anthy) ; IM-SWITCH VALUE
If I right click the UIM icon in the Gnome panel, and select "about...",
it shows me a screen with this:
Uim Applet for GNOME 1.0.0

Thank you for explaining the situation. I do in fact have a ~/.uim.d
directory, so I assume that all the correct settings are being stored there.

Sounds like a good plan.

I can't tell from the one line in the file, as shown above, if there's
any indication what process created it.

I tried this, but could not log in at all and had to struggle to regain
permission to gain access to my account again.

Yes, it seems that logging in and out will create the file.

There is no file in that directory named .uim, but I can't be sure if
there is another file which contains instructions to create a .uim file.
