I tested in the pretest of Emacs 21.2, but latin-pre.el didn't change 
in this area since 21.1 was released.

Ah, yes.  I misunderstood you earlier: I thought you were talking about 
typing ",c" etc., not ", ".  I do see ", " produce "~".

However, it seems like it's done on purpose, and I'm not a French 
speaker, so I don't know why.

Yet another sign that this is some kind of feature.

I'm not sure, but I think input methods deal with ASCII characters.  If 
your keyboard can produce non-ASCII characters directly, you might be 
better off with encoded keyboard (C-x RET k latin-1 RET) than with input 
methods.
