Description of problem:
When using Gtk2 with the XIM input module, the compose key seems to
have no effect. Other input modules (Default, Cyrillic
transliterated, etc.) seem to work correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a Gtk2 application (any) with GTK_IM_MODULE=xim
2. Select a GtkTextView, GtkEntry, etc.
3. Press <Multi_Key> ' e (i.e., Compose apostrophe e)
Actual Results: The string "'e" is entered in the in the buffer.
Expected Results: The string "ï¿½" should be entered in the buffer.
(Either my mozilla or the bugzilla server seems to have been confused
about character sets ... that unknown character should obviously be
U+00e9, LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH ACUTE.)
