This bug:
was opened over six years ago and is still listed as "unresolved."  It
unfortunately affects my product.  Any chance of getting a resolution or
an update on its status?

In a nutshell, "dead keys" (accent modifier keys) on certain
international keyboards are not properly handled in Swing on Un*x
systems.  Only the key release event from those keys is delivered to
applications, without a prior key press event.
