Typing special characters (accents) and symbols with Option fails
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/418 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/417.9.2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1a2) Gecko/20060509 BonEcho/2.0a2 Trying to enter special characters with the Option key (I.e. an u-umlaut with 'Option-u+u' doesn't work. Probably related to the event changes in bug 332579 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Hold Option and press 'u' (You'll get ¨(just the accent) underlined) 2. Type 'u' (You get a ü underlined) 3. Try to type something else (you'll get this character underlined instead of the ü) Actual Results: Every character you type (except for return) ends up being underline and in the place of the originally typed character Expected Results: I expected a normal ü and being able to type afterwards :) Using Bon Echo of today/last night. BTW is there any way to use the normal bug entry form instead of the wizard?

A fix for this problem is in byg 337199 patch v1 (attachment 221541 [details] [diff] [review]).
Depends on: 337199
Fixed in the build from bug 337199 (v8). The only problem so far is: "One problem is that leaving composition mode isn't handled as cleanly as it could be. If you type (with a US keyboard) option-U,B, you would expect to see umlaut,B (try it in a current release version), but instead, you just get the umlaut." (bug 337199 comment 5) Great work, Mark!
