While looking at the bug filed at 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=572147, I noticed that Java 
applications crash if IBus (an X input server) is restarted.

The webrev is at 

The code in awt_InputMethod.c guards against the XIM server going away, 
but does not guard against it appearing again. When the XIM server is 
restarted, the X server can send async requests to call OpenXIMCallback 
in Java automatically:
(gdb) bt
#0  OpenXIMCallback (display=<value optimized out>,
     client_data=<value optimized out>, call_data=<value optimized out>)
     at ../../../src/solaris/native/sun/awt/awt_InputMethod.c:1464
#1  0x00000036b406dc4f in _XimFilterPropertyNotify (display=0x7f503c0df300,
     window=<value optimized out>, event=<value optimized out>,
     client_data=<value optimized out>) at imInsClbk.c:126
#2  0x00007f4ff24f0f3f in Java_sun_awt_X11_XlibWrapper_XFilterEvent (
     env=<value optimized out>, clazz=<value optimized out>,
     ptr=<value optimized out>, window=<value optimized out>)
     at ../../../src/solaris/native/sun/xawt/XlibWrapper.c:486
#3  0x00007f5039010f50 in ?? ()
#4  0x00007f5039005953 in ?? ()
#5  0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()

This causes the X11im pointer to get initialized and the checks in 
getX11InputMethodData are escaped. The patch simply makes sure that the 
checks are not escaped by calling getX11InputMethodData in 

Any thoughts or comments?
