The point I was trying to make was that, accent composition with dead
keys handled by almost exactly the same code path as accent
composition in Vietnamese.

Both are handled by the GtkIMContextSimple input method - the only
difference is the tables involved.

However, I can in fact reproduce it here, and I think I know the
problem - the input method is seeing

 E <AltGR> ^
 
Not E ^.

Just needs to ignore the AltGR (Actually Mode_Switch) key symbol
when doing composition processing. Which simply means adding it
to the gtk_compose_ignore[] array in gtkimcontextsimple.c

Thanks for catching this.
