This boggles my mind.

Yes, this works for me on a Debian testing system (xfree86 4.3.0.dfsg.1-4).

This is screwed up.  In uxterm running bash with LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8, I
*can* get per mille, but not aogonek, using the compose sequences you

In the Mozilla location bar, I can get aogonoek, but not per mille.

This is very frustrating and confusing, and unfortunately appears to be a
bit beyond my skills to debug.
