We also had scim problems --- it wants applications to be compiled
with exactly the same g++ version as it it, and swish is often more
conservative than the latest ubuntu/fedora.  We therefore switched to
using UIM for our input method, and removed scim.   If there were some
way for itsdb to use the system's tcl/tk then this problem would also
go away :-).
