Bug#683630: gtk+3.0: composition rules don't work with X Input Method any more

Package: gtk+3.0
Version: 3.4.2-2
Severity: normal


Composition rules currently do not work with X input method any more in
gtk, for instance dead_circumflex+e produces ^e instead of ê. This also
happens with gtk+2.0, but not e.g. in xterm or rxvt.

To reproduce: start gedit, right-click in the text area, and in "Input
Methods", select "X Input Method". Type dead_circumflex and e, it
produces ^e.

Note: the "Simple" input method does get ê correctly, but does not take
~/.XCompose into account.

Actually, typing random strings in the Finder does the equivalent of
filename completion.
(Discussion in comp.os.linux.misc on the intuitiveness of commands: file
completion vs. the Mac Finder.)
