Also, apart from those local fixes, the core of the problem is pango has
usually no idea what language you're trying to type, and tries to guess from
what you're typing. Sometimes it guesses wrong, or changes its mind when you
type more text that gaves it more info.

To put an end to this class of bugs (which are not limited to VLGothic or
Japanese) you need a language switcher applet that, in addition to managing
input methods, tells explicitely apps what's being typed.
