It seems to me that scim's gtk-immodule is not recognized.  Try the following 
command and see if scim shows up in the menu.

gtk-query-immodules-2.0 > /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules

I have the following entry in /etc/gtk-2.0/gtk.immodules.lib
(the file name changed from gtk.immodules...)

"scim" "SCIM Input Method" "scim" "/usr/share/locale" "*"

I don't use multi-key, but dead keys work without activating SCIM with 
ctrl+space for me.  I'm using scim 0.99.9 in Mandrakelinux 10.1.
