Thanks for the idea, but I've tried that one.  :-(

That gives me similar behavior to the multi_key switch in that I can type
accented characters and the keyboard input seems to be accepted, but no
character is displayed.

I'm really having a hard time with this one because it seems like if the
display is broken (which was my initial thought) then it should always be
broken.  If it works it should always work.  But it is broken if I try to get
accented characters on local applications, but works fine if I try to get them
even if I do something as simple as ssh in a locally running kterm to another
machine.  Then I can type them and they display are they are supposed to.  So,
I'm not sure what is going on here.

Ideas still appreciated!
