Bug Description

[Impact]
This bug affects any of the "extended characters" clicked on from the long-press popup in the Screen Keyboard.

[Test Case]
1. Open GNOME Settings > Universal Access
2. Enable the Screen Keyboard. (Optionally, turn on Always Show Universal Access Menu to make turning the Screen Keyboard on and off easier.)
3. Open Text Editor
4. Click the u button on the Screen Keyboard
5. Long-press the u button on the Screen Keyboard for a few seconds.
6. On the popup, click the ü character.

What Happens
In Step 4, u is entered in the Text Editor document.
Nothing is entered in Step 5.

[Regression Potential]
The code to be backported only affects OSK. Check that normal OSK keys (e.g. a,b,c,...) normally works.
