#15908 new defect

Compose key doesn't work when GTK_IM_MODULE=xim

When GTK_IM_MODULE=xim is set in the environment when starting Tor Browser 4.5, the compose key will not work. Unsetting the variable will fix the issue.

This is on a Debian Wheezy system.

(I don't think I'm going dig deeper now that I have a work-around.)

Confirmed on TBB 4.5.1, Linux amd64

This also impacts keymaps with dead keys, such as us-intl.

However unsetting GTK_IM_MODULE seems to break XCompose mappings, so it would be great if TBB would honor GTK_IM_MODULE again.
