This is my case exactly. Even typing on an xterm yields the correct
accented characters, it's only Openoffice that's misbehaving. I've
already posted twice to their discuss list, but didn't get any
conclusive answers yet.
A curiosity, though, that might be related: I can type the euro-sign in
Openoffice, but NOWHERE else under X or in the console!
