This is an equivalent of D1570, except that the base branch is blender2.8.
D1570 now causes many conflicts when merging master into blender2.8 branch.

What this patch changes:

  • Use over-the-spot style with XIM if available
  • Don't dispatch keyboard events to XIM server if not doing text input
  • Generalise API to use 'XIM'/'IME' only in GHOST_*X11/Win32, respectively

Also fix some issues:

  • Correct location of Win32 IME's candidate window near the bottom of screen
  • Draw cursor in console_draw_string(), not in console_textview_line_color()
