FYI, according to fontforge contributor, George Willams and Nicolas Spalinger:

As I said, I cannot duplicate the problem, all works fine for me, which
makes Nicolas's suggestion likely.

As far as I can tell there is nothing funny about the Goto dialog and I
can't imagine how input could work other places and not there.

I've added some debugging code to the cvs tree so that I can see what
the input method does to the input stream. If you are interested could
you build fontforge from cvs
  $ CFLAGS="-g -DTESTXIM" ; export CFLAGS
  $ ./configure
  $ make
  $ su
  # make install
And then run fontforge and tell me what is printed (to stdout) when you
try to do the things that don't work.:

It might be some conflicts between SCIM and fontforge, as my sys env is SCIM
started by default.
