but it is not possible to input accented characters in the rxvt-xpm...
however, thanks for the clarification - it's indeed the 'keycap
insertion mode' message that is displayed in the window from time to

I use rxvt-xpm nowadays because of such strangeness.
There is no way to disable the special input modes. That's why Debian
provides both rxvt-xpm (rxvt) and urxvt (rxvt-unicode).
BTW, I can input accented characters in rxvt using my Multi_key
(Compose). I used xmodmap to assign an unused key to the Compose key. I
press Compose-A-` to get À.
Here are some more fun composed characters: § ½ ¶ ÷ × « »
è é ö â ø ÿ
I input them into rxvt-xpm and copied them into Thunderbird.
