bug#30092: Compose key behaviour is incorrect when locale is set to Esperanto

Carmen Bianca Bakker
Dear Emacs maintainer(s),

I am running into an unusual bug of sorts.  That is:  The behaviour of the
compose key is incorrect when the locale is set to "eo" (Esperanto).  The exact
behaviour is as follows:

- When running `XMODIFIERS="" emacs`, `<MULTI_KEY> a e` does not produce æ.  It
  simply produces nothing.  `<MULTI_KEY> ' e` correctly produces é, however.

- When running `XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus emacs` (my default), simply pressing the
  compose key results in `<MULTI_KEY> is undefined`.

Emacs is (almost) the only program where this happens. The only other program
that reliably fails on the same sequences is xterm.  xterm results in the same
behaviour for both `XMODIFIERS` values.  All other programs (Firefox,
LibreOffice, gedit, Yakuake, etc.) function correctly.

But, when I run `LC_ALL=en_GB.UTF-8 emacs`, the behaviour is as expected:  All
compose key sequences just work.  The same is true for running xterm with the
en_GB.UTF-8 locale.

I am running Debian Buster with GNOME on Wayland.  The bug occurs with a vanilla
.emacs.d/ folder.  I have ibus installed and running, but also without ibus
running, I run into the first of the two items.

Because it happens on both Emacs and xterm, I suspect that this bug may not be
exclusive to Emacs, but I am hoping that someone with a better understanding
than I could point me in the right direction.

Thank you very much.

Yours sincerely,
