When (in a linux SuSE system i've tested) you have an US keyboard and set this
up with acents and system encoding is UTF-8, all system displays wrong cedil
character (ć) when cute(') then c is pressed. When the encoding (LANG system
variable) was changed, all applications works fine displaying a correct cedil
(ç) but Mozilla Thunderbird and Firefox still having problems. I have choose to
put this bug at Thunderbird section because I don't now where must I place it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug an US Keyboard on a Linux platform (only SuSE 9.2 and 9.3 was tested)
and configure kbd with ""
2. With system variable LANG set with "en_US.UTF-8"  when you press cute (')
then c will appear ć
3. Set system variable with "en_US.ISO8859-1", then cedil will appear correctlly
: ç but mozilla applications (Thunderbird and Firefox) not.

Actual Results:

What did you do? What did you not understand? It is in a kind of queue?

I have made a script changing LANG to pt_BR.ISO8859-1 before calling thunderbird
and its working now. Thanks
