iiimf eats European dead keys

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #130851 +++
Description of problem:
After trying adding "XIM=htt" to ~/.i18n to get
gnome-im-switcher-applet to work, as said in Bug #113922,
the im-switcher runs fine but now dead keys on a swedish
keyboard layout doesn't work anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add "XIM=htt" to ~/.i18n or global i18n-file
2. Log in and out from gnome.
3. Add gnome-im-switcher-applet to panel and play with that.
4. setxkbmap se
Dead keys don't work. Â¨, ^ and ~ act as if they are dead but
nothing is produced. ~ + space outputs ' ', Â¨ + a outputs 'a'.
Dead keys should work. ~ + space output '~', Â¨ + a output 'Ã¤'.
I have input all these characters with 'setxkblayout se nodeadkeys'
since I can't input them with the dead keys anymore.
Â¨, ^ and ~ are on the key right of ] on a swedish keyboard.
Fixed in 12.2-9 for devel. the dead key should work even without UNIT now
(except with non-GTK apps. look at Bug#140320). hopefully the updated packages
for FC3 and FC4 will be available soon.
