@clu: The concept of switching input method or languages could be unfamiliar to western users, but is very essential to Chinese (and probably other Asian) users who input non-ASCII characters via a standard keyboard. In Windows users can organize their input methods and languages in "language bar", and here is a link on MS website that may be helpful: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/cc452fac-0858-4baf-bc01-005ef3c901751033.mspx The links to "Add an input language" and "Change your input language" on that page may be helpful, too. The pictures on that page used Windows Vista as example, but I can recall Windows 2000 already have this feature, I uploaded several pictures on Windows XP for better illustration. By the way whether this problem exists on Windows 2000 and Vista as well are yet to be verified. thx.

@clu: From what I have experimented on several machines the specific way to switch, whether via keyboard shortcut or context menu, or if extra actions are performed during the procedure does not seem to matter. Neither does the version of OOo count. The deadlock is always reproduceable. Would you please re-verify it on a Windows, with email account configured, and address book created in a thunderbird or Outlook Express? Thanks.
