OpenOffice Crashes: "Failed to Create XIC" in Command Line

Whenever I used “Ctrl+S”, “Ctrl+O”, or any other keyboard command that opens a KDE FileDialog, OpenOffice crashes every time. OpenOffice produces the dialog closes it and produces another two and then crashes. This happens from every OpenOffice program. Running OpenOffice from the terminal, the error that it outputs is “Failed to Create XIC”.

If I just access the same commands using the mouse such as Clicking “Save As”, “Open”, or any other command that opens a KDE FileDialog OpenOffice does not crash.

The error is very similar to that of “”.

OpenOffice 3.2.1
scim 1.4.7-174.1
KDE 4.4.4
openSUSE 11.3 64-bit

Does anyone have any suggestions for this issue?
