Description of problem:
gnome-terminal does not accept letters entered via the keyboard which are
outside the current locale.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in with us-english settings
2. chose hungarian keyboard via the keyboard switching applet
3. try to enter o with two long strokes: o?= or u with two long strokes: o?= into
Actual Results: the terminal does not accept the above keystrokes (acts as if
no key was pressed)
Expected Results: the terminal should accept the keystrokes, and display the
letters they mean.
the letters mentioned above: o with two long strokes: o?= or u with two long
strokes: o?=, are outside ISO-8859-1. otther 'funny' hungarian letters, which are
both in ISO-8859-1 an ISO-8859-2, are accepted.
the mentioned letters are displayed correctly in the terminal, but one can't
copy-paste them either.
other applications accept input for these letters in the same setup
This shouldn't be an issue anymore.
