Which exact version of XFree86 4.3 are you running. I seem to just been
bitten by it and I have XFree86 4.3.0-0pre1v3. I am going to see if
going back to 4.3.0-0pre1v1 will fix the problem.  I am now seeing both
the deadkeys will not work issue and the accented chars show up as '?'
glyphs. I didn't upgrade to 4.3.0-0pre1v3 as soon as other people
since I don't have experimental listed in my sources.list so this may be
the cause of the problem.
