(I'm not sure if this is the correct package to submit it too, if it's not let me know and I can fix it)

After upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04 I can't have dead keys in my keyboard working as intended. All supposed dead keys are converted to regular characters (e.g. when pressing ~ followed by a should give a with a tilde on top, but it gives the sequence "~a"). I'm using the "English US international with dead keys" keyboard layout, but the same problem happens if I try other keyboards with dead keys such as "Portuguese Brazil". Both these keyboards worked as intended before the upgrade.
