Hi Guix users!

I installed Emacs 27.1. via GNU Guix and I found one action, which
always crashes Emacs in this version, while it did not do that before:

M-x set-input-method RET chinese-py RET

It crashes completely and shows no error, simply goes down. Am I the
only one? Does it happen for anyone else? I am assuming, that this only
happens with the GNU Guix installed version of Emacs, but have not
tested that.

My system is a Trisquel 8 on an X200.

What more info could I provide and how, to find the cause?

I don't know what is the cause here.  `set-input-method chinese-py` in
Emacs installed via guix works for me on both Guix System and NixOS.

By the way, if you are interested in Chinese input method, I suggest you
try pyim and emacs-rime.  As a native Chinese, I can confidently say
these two packages are far more better than the built-in chinese-py.  No
Chinese emacs user uses chinese-py to input Chinese characters.

Thanks for the advice! I have not tried other input methods in Emacs yet
and always took it as sort of a challenge to having to know the actual
character, to be able to write Chinese in Emacs :D On one hand it puts
the last used characters to the front, but on the other hand it does not
do much more than that. Its simplicity is sometimes a help, but also
often not very helpful.

I will give your suggestions a try later.

谢谢 and 祝好,
Zelphir
