Thanks. Already debugged the issue as far as my knowledge of emacs/X

command_loop_1 does not notice that á was typed until another character
comes. My guess is that emacs does not receive the notification until
something else comes from X (another character or an expired timer,
which is the case when blink-cursor-mode is on).
