Dead acute with C results in C-cedilla instead of C-acute

Bug Description

Whether you use international keyboard layouts or some European ones such as Bulgarian layout, and no difference which version of Ubuntu you use, dead acute with the letter "c" results in "ç" (c-cedilla) while it should result in "ć" (c-acute).

What should be: dead acute + c = ć
What really is: dead acute + c = ç

This strange behavior is not seen with any other letters. And dead cedilla works correctly with all letters including "c".

Since this bug is common in all versions of Ubuntu, it can be a bug in basic packages maybe not special to Ubuntu only.

Selecting "simple" for inbut method is a workaround for this problem. So the problem seems to be related to IBUS.

as far as I understood, this is related to the need felt in Portuguese speaking languages to have the ç at hand.
unfortunately this has gone a bit to far and there is now no easy way to type ć, short of learning its code.
