I use gnome 2.22.2 as my desktop manager

I specifically cannot add accent to greek letters/characters, should be probably happening the same with the spanish language (not checked) or any other language that uses accents.

Steps:
1) Create a text box in Scribus, double-click to be able to edit
2) Switch your keyboard layout (gnome) to greek language
3) Type in an accented character. For the "Generic 105-key (intl) pc" with "Greece-Greek" Gnome layout, I typically press the ";" and "e" keys in order to get: έ (U+03AD GREEK SMALL LETTER EPSILON WITH TONOS)
The problem is that the text "Τα νέα μας το πρωΐ" appears as: "Τα ν´εα μας το πρω¨´ι"

Other examples:
shit + ";" + "i": Ϊ (U+03AA GREEK CAPITAL LETTER IOTA WITH DIALYTIKA)
shift+";" and ";" (adds accent/tonos and diaireses/dialytika) and "y": ΰ (U+03B0 GREEK SMALL LETTER UPSILON WITH DIALYTIKA AND TONOS)

Mind you, this works as expected in other programs, openoffice.org, mozilla firefox, gedit, etc.
