Bug Description

Pinta doesn’t allow to type text with diacritics. All letters with accents or umlauts are displayed without them. This bug is maybe related with bug 776328.

I tried to write German umlauts, but instead of letters: ä, ü and ö letters a, u and o are displayed.

Using Pinta latest development on Ubuntu 12.04, now it is fixed copy/paste in Pinta (GitHub commit from 6 of May 2012). And I can copy all of the German umlauts and I can also copy Cyrillic letters. But I still can't type in any of them.

For copy/paste I have used the following web pages:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrillic --> table on the bottom
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germanic_umlaut --> first table from "Morphological effects" chapter.
