Building with jhbuild with no versions specified, so I assume git
master.  This was Thursday last week (2010-04-29).

I only actually tried this now with our own application, Virtaal,
written in pygtk. Result is the same for textareas and plain entries.

This was not in effect at the time that I tested it now with a new build
on someone's machine (I think we haven't yet built the python bindings
for it at the time).  I can hopefully try again on a machine at the
office which is still running on the version on the old ISO image posted
many moons ago that has the menu integration if you suspect some
interference from the gtk menu.

We tested (at least) Russian, Arabic and a few others from the standard
list in OSX, and a custom keyboard for Akan.  The Akan keyboard actually
had better results, failing only on the non-ASCII characters. Everything
is working fine in Linux and Windows (including Arabic, Cyrillic, etc.
that isn't working on OSX), except for this issue on Windows:

The British English layout seemed to work fine, including non-ASCII

I can check again that all these work well in other Mac applications,
but have no reason to doubt that they would work perfectly.
