Just to be sure, are you talking about the "Compose" key? or something

How did it work before? Was it configured by default? Or did you
configure something using xmodmap (in your .xsession for instance)?
Note that it could also be related to your window manager. I know that
for instance Gnome has some "special keys" configuration options. Did
you check there? Do you have any idea whether it worked under any other
Anyway, could you send us your xorg.conf, the output of "setxkbmap
-print" and "xmodmap -pk"?
