Hi Anton,

I'm not an expert in IM code, but generally the changes look good to me. 
I'm also CC'ing i18n-dev@ to take a look at this fix.

My only concern is that you're changing shared code here. Did you run 
any IM tests on other platforms to make sure no regressions are introduced?

Also, could you please add a comment to the bug report explaining the 
root cause of the issue and how the proposed solution helps resolve it?

best regards,
