I've been doing well on various systems with various distributions using a
slightly modified Compose file in /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8 (e.g. meta
+ - + a for ā instead of meta + shift + - + a).

After installation of OpenSuse 11.2 (with KDE SC 4.4RC3), however, still the
old key combinations show off with the compose key.
I compared everything I am aware of (etc/sysconfig, kdecontrolcenter etc.) with
my other system, which is all identic and where the modified Compose works (the
only difference is x86 vs. x86_64).
It may be an X11 problem, Gnome apps (which I configured to follow XIM) don't
work with the new combinations, too. I'm using the newest X11 rpms from the X11

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Replace original Unicode Compose file with this one:
2. Restart X
3. Try to type something with the new shortcuts
Actual Results:
They should work. Otherwise you have the same bug as I.
