It seems something related to the mixup of the versions causes your current
situation.  To clear the things out, I suggest removing uim related ubuntu
packages completely and just install uim 1.5.3 from source, and also remove
config  (rm -rf ~/.uim.d/) before using uim.

> The command "export | grep im" lists the following:
> declare -x GTK_IM_MODULE="uim"
> declare -x QT_IM_MODULE="uim"
> declare -x XIM_PROGRAM="/usr/bin/uim-xim"
> declare -x XMODIFIERS="@im=uim"

These environmental variables seem fine.

Maybe uim-en mailing list (http://groups.google.com/group/uim-en) is more
suitable for these kind of trouble shootings.
