You are right, (almost) everything works! :)

It looks for a fatal coincidence - my problem was caused by both 
applications I checked (xchat and gimp), separately - gtk seems to work,

I hid .xchat config dir and started xchat. After changing fonts to
iso-8859-2 I can write in polish! I had choosen the same fonts some time
ago in erlier version of xchat - it looks that stale config
files made problems. 

Gimp seems to have a bug: have a look at these two procedures:

0 I start gimp
1 I create new document
2 I use Text Tool - I get Text Tool window
3 I try to type some text _FIRST_: Alt-a, Alt-e and so on - nothing
  happens (i can only type ascii letters)
4 Now I choose some iso8859-2 font
5 I cannot type polish letters any more - nothing helps!
6 I exit gimp

0 I start gimp
1 I create new document
2 I use Text Tool - I get Text Tool window
3 _FIRST_ I choose the same iso8859-2 font
4 Now I can type polish letters!
5 I can choose another font, even another encoding - and nothing prevents
  me from latin2 input now!

gimp-1.1.6 - I'll try newer version maybe this is fixed.

Another thing that still doesn't work is all input widgets in dialogs:
eg I cannot name my fauvorite ircserver in polish in xchat server list
dialog, and I cannot type latin2 filenames in any Open File dialog (they
are displayed properly, however). 
But maybe this feature is not implemented yet.

Thank you both (You and Pablo Saratxaga) for help.
