When using scim-bridge-qt4 immodule I can't use Compose key to type special characters like euro-sign or letters like ø, ó, á (which are typed by pressing Compose key and / and then o, for example).

It works fine with gtk-im-module in gtk applications:

This works:
XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM" GTK_IM_MODULE="scim-bridge" QT_IM_MODULE="scim-bridge" gedit

However with qt immodule this doesn't work:
XMODIFIERS="@im=SCIM" GTK_IM_MODULE="scim-bridge" QT_IM_MODULE="scim-bridge" ./demos/textedit/textedit

(the immodule itself works - I can trigger a panel and type for example canna).

I am using Qt 4.5.0 and scim-bridge-qt4 0.4.14

    The current implementation of scim-bridge masks some compose keys. We are working on this and try to fix it in the next release.
