Strange behaviour on entering esperanto characters

Asked by Patrick (Petriko) Oudejans

After entering an esperanto character the next typed character appears in front of it. For example, the word ŝanĝiĝo becomes aŝniĝoĝ. All of this happens in 'x-sistemo', 'q-sistemo' and 'h-sistemo'. A simular problem occurs using 'vi-sistemo', 'h-fundamente' and 'plena', but then ŝanĝiĝo becomes ŝnaiĝoĝ. The same problems occur when using the normal form of esperanto characters, for example cigaro becomes icagro or icgrao. These problems did not occur in Ubuntu 11.04 (ibus-m17n version 1.3.1-1) but they do occur in my current version of Ubuntu, 11.10 (ibus-m17n version 1.3.2-1)

This problem is not limited to Esperanto, see for example Bug #840823: Problem at typing latest letter.

The solutions seems to be to manually recompile ibus with a particular fix. Instructions are here:

Hopefully someone will release this version as a .deb package.

Can you help with this problem?
