Bug Description

I am creating documentation for the Compose Key
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ComposeKey and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GtkComposeTable
in the course of which I am keying in all of the Multi_key sequences defined in
/gtk/gtkimcontextsimple.c (gtk+ version 2.10.7)

The sequences
Multi_key U - [capital U, minus) and Multi_Key U _ (capital U, underscore) should produce Latin Capital U with macron Ū. In fact they generate a lower case u with macron ū
Note also that the source file has the unicode for the lower case value (0x016B) although both the description and the use of upper case keys in the sequence would make it reasonable to expect an upper case U with macron. (0x016A). The equivalent code for the lower case u is correct in every case.

Ū Multi_key minus U 0x016A Latin capital U with macron
ū Multi_key U underscore 0x016B Latin capital U with macron *BUG*
ū Multi_key U minus 0x016B Latin capital U with macron *BUG*
Ū Multi_key underscore U 0x016A Latin capital U with macron
ū Multi_key minus u 0x016B Latin small U with macron
ū Multi_key u minus 0x016B Latin small U with macron
ū Multi_key u underscore 0x016B Latin small U with macron
ū Multi_key underscore u 0x016B Latin small U with macron

/gtk/gtkimcontextsimple.c (gtk+ version 2.10.7)
Source line 635
  GDK_Multi_key, GDK_U, GDK_minus, 0, 0, 0x016B, /* LATIN_CAPITAL_LETTER_U_WITH_MACRON */

Source line 639
  GDK_Multi_key, GDK_U, GDK_underscore, 0, 0, 0x016B, /* LATIN_CAPITAL_LETTER_U_WITH_MACRON */

The only documentation I can find is the comments in the source code which I have quoted above. That is why I am creating the documentation on the Ubuntu wiki.
As best as I can understand the actual code it would appear that the fix would be to change the unicode string to produce the correct characters eg
/gtk/gtkimcontextsimple.c (gtk+ version 2.10.7)

change lines 635 and 639 from 0x016B to 0x016A

Source line 635
  GDK_Multi_key, GDK_U, GDK_minus, 0, 0, 0x016A, /* LATIN_CAPITAL_LETTER_U_WITH_MACRON */

Source line 639
  GDK_Multi_key, GDK_U, GDK_underscore, 0, 0, 0x016A, /* LATIN_CAPITAL_LETTER_U_WITH_MACRON */

This would make the comments, the sense of the Key sequence using upper case U and the unicode value all in agreement and coherent with similar codes in the file.

Yes it would be best to open the bug upstream with Gnome but I already have a login with Ubuntu whereas I would have to open yet another account and forgettable password to do the same with Gnome.
