Package: thunar
Version: 1.6.10-2
Severity: normal
Tags: l10n

Dear Maintainer,

When I try to name a new file or rename an existing one, dead keys do not work
on the file name field that pops up. If I type "<dead_acute> a" I get "a"
instead of "á". My custom compose sequences also don't work. If I type
"<Multi_key> g a" I get "ga" instead of the "α" that I was expecting (I
configured that sequence in my .XCompose file).

I can only input accented characters in Thunar if I type them with AltGr (for
example, "AltGr+," = "ç") or if I copy paste them from some other application
where I can write my accented characters the regular way.

I also noticed that the "Go->Open Location" also doesn't handle dead keys very
well and suspect that this problem might show up on other text fields as well.

I originally suspected that this might have to do with misconfigured locale
environment variables but when I looked at /proc/<THUNARPID>/environ everithing
seemed OK (LC_CTYPE is set to "pt_BR.utf8" and GTK_IM_MODULE is set to "xim")
