scim isn't installed.

mw@quill:~> echo $XMODIFIERS
@im=local

$GTK_IM_MODULE isn't set.

When I run gedit as in your first example and try to type an accented
character, it doesn't work, and the following is sent to stderr:

** (gedit:2441): WARNING **: Error converting text from IM to UTF-8:
Invalid
byte sequence in conversion input


** (gedit:2441): WARNING **: Error converting text from IM to UTF-8:
Invalid
byte sequence in conversion input

(it is printed twice.)

There were two additional changes that I had made and forgotten about;
/etc/profile.local sets LANG and LC_COLLATE to C. My apologies for forgetting
about this.

When I run gedit like this:

env XMODIFIERS=@im=local GTK_IM_MODULE=xim LANG=en_US gedit

accented characters are possible.

So this may all be my fault.
