------- Comment #9 from mfabian@xxxxxxxxxx 2007-02-06 13:49 MST -------
Michael Wolf> So this may all be my fault.

Not really.

The iso8859-1 Compose file is loaded both by gedit and xterm when
run in C locale:

mfabian@magellan:/tmp$ env XMODIFIERS=@im=local GTK_IM_MODULE=xim LANG=C strace
-eopen -f gedit 2>&1 | grep Compose
open("/home/mfabian/.XCompose", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
directory)
open("/usr/share/X11/locale/iso8859-1/Compose", O_RDONLY) = 18
mfabian@magellan:/tmp$ env XMODIFIERS=@im=local GTK_IM_MODULE=xim LANG=C strace
-eopen -f xterm 2>&1 | grep Compose
open("/home/mfabian/.XCompose", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
directory)
open("/usr/share/X11/locale/iso8859-1/Compose", O_RDONLY) = 6
mfabian@magellan:/tmp$

And in xterm the Compose support works in this case although it
doesn't work in gedit. If this can be made to work in xterm, it
should be possible to make it work in GTK2 as well.

I'm not sure whether it is worth investigating this though, one cannot
really expect that non-ASCII stuff works in the C/POSIX locale.

He who want's to use รก should not expect that this works in C/POSIX.
