you need to do the export BEFORE you run uxterm

is en_US.UTF-8 locale generated?
check out if file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/compose.dir
contains line:
en_US.UTF-8/Compose:    en_US.UTF-8
and there are files Compose and XLC_LOCALE in directory

(I had the same problem with woody and self-generated UTF-8 locale - 
dead keys did not work until I added the line and copied the mentioned
files into proper locations)
