I don't know exactly what the problem is, but in Emacs 21.2 it
probably helps to use `set-keyboard-coding-system' with `utf-8'.  That
works around a bug decoding X input (fixed for 21.3) without having to
use development source.

[The x-keysym-table feature was meant for a different circumstance,
and by design may insert characters that the buffer's coding system
can't encode.]
