I remember having once had this problem previously.  If I remember
correctly, the Compose key _did_ work, but only if the mouse pointer
was within the main text window.  If the mouse pointer was somewhere
in the menu bar, or the scroll bars, or outside of the main window,
even when the keyboard focus definitely still was with Emacs, the
compose key stopped working.  I reported this at the time, but no
conclusion could be found (I believe RMS said that he could
corroborate the problem, but not find the cause).  IIRC, this version
at the time was compiled with Motif, but I am not completely sure.

Klaus, would the Compose key work if you moved the mouse pointer over
the main window?
