Yes. I've talked with Anja about this issue, and until now I didn't vote 
on it for the following reasons:

* I don't like that some additional setting needs to be done to get it 
right again. imho, the code should handle it internally (read: take 
correct path by checking im version). But, if its done internally and 
released as bugfix, this means that all images will change during 
upgrading (they are technically more correct than before, but they *do* 
change). This might not be exactly cool for some people, especially if 
released as bugfix for 4.5.

* We might release the patch for 6.1 only (and *maybe* 6.0), but then 
there will be no good choice for instances of 4.7 and below ...

* If there is an additional config setting, there should be logic to at 
least choose some sane default during install process.

I'm personally unsure on how to proceed in this case ... the current 
patch itself is obvious and works, but ... is it the best way to handle 
this API change of im?
