IME Bug still exists in Firewall!!! NOT resolved!!!

yes, the phantom IME bug STILL exists!!!

i just installed it, and started having the phantom IME bar bug. it is exactly as described in these topics:

Windows XP, SP3 (32bit, US)
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 1700+
Memory: 1GB
Avira antivirus
Microsoft IME 2002 ver. 8.1 (an integral part of Windows XP, NOT a downloaded program)

been two years, SOLVE THIS!!! or just keep denying it exists, and cut off business from any country whose languages require IME.
