Description of problem:
In pango (tested it in gedit and firefox), the deletion with DELETE key, is not following the rule of deleting entire composed character with a single key press. It is deleting each of the character in a composed character, one by one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gedit or firefox in mr_IN locale
2. Activate ibus with CTRL+SPACE. Select marathi - Inscript
3. Type : kdk (which means consonant KA + Halant + Consonant KA)
4. Position the cursor at the beginning point of the composed character.
5. Now, press DELETE key. (It needs 3 key strokes to delete the whole character, but it should be done with a single key stroke in fact)
Delete composed character is happening in wrong manner. Actually it is now following the convention (Rule) of BACKSPACE, when deleting a composed character comes into picture.
It should delete the whole composed character in one DELETE key stroke when cursor positions at the start of the composed character.
OS : RHEL6-Workstation-Snapshot-13
Arch : x86_64
