scim with gtk3 segfaults on current

When I am using the scim (gtk3) im-module with a gtk3 application that provides an input-field on screen, the application segfaults. I am using Slackware-current.

I'm not using any desktop-environment (but a reparenting WM) and can reproduce the error with just (in .xinitrc or .xsession)

PHP Code:
scim -d
gtk3-demo # open "text-widget/multiple views" for example 
I filed the issue to scim ( However, does anybody else experience this problem or could it be some problem with my installation? Or maybe glib2 or gtk3?
While I filed the issue for the current scim, I also encounter this problem with scim-1.4.15 from slackware-current.

I mixed something up, I was apparently not using the current version, but the latest release (1.4.15, the same as slackware uses).
The current version works, especially because of this bugfix:

Slackware Maintainers, please import this patch to Slackware.

The bug is caused by having both the gtk2 and the gtk3 module using an object-file that has been compiled only for the gtk2 module. That should be a bug to all Slackware-current installations with scim installed.
